Was very impressed with the exhibits and friendliness of staff. Went back next night for halloween activities for the kids. Everyone was so friendly and gracious to us. They didn't know we were visiting from out of state. All of the folks we meet in Cheyenne were so friendly, courteous, and helpful.

My son and I like to stop in here every six months or so. The staff are very friendly and the museum is kept up very nice. Being from the area I am always amazed at what I learn…as my son gets older he take notice of different things each time we are in. Very worth the stop!

Nice self guided tour which is free (donations are accepted) and a lot of history of Wyoming. Worth a visit if you're in the area and the price is right. A lot of good information brochures for Wyoming also available here, especially for the parks.

This museum is chock full of interesting facts and history about Wyoming. The best part: they provide several activites to engage school-age kids. You know, the age too big to play in the kiddie section but not interested in "learning." Challenge them with a quiz/ scavenger hunt with a prize incentive and Viola! They learn about Wyoming. Plus, it gives... More

The museum is full of important artifacts of Wyoming, both historic and prehistoric. All of the employees were helpful and pleasant. The museum isn't very large, but packed full of information. There were several child friendly exhibits.

How many museums do youngsters beg to visit that aren't children's museums? Our grandsons love visiting and ask to stop in on a regular basis. They particularly enjoy the hands on section where they can dress up and play pioneer. Or cowboy. Or whatever catches their eye. Staff is always friendly and welcoming! A Cheyenne gem! And it's FREE!

We were only able to devote a little more than an hour to this exhibit, but wish we could have stayed longer. There were many displays covering many topics of historical significance to the area and the state. Some were interactive (you could touch them). The lighting was good and the explanations offered and accompanying signs were quite informative. Good... More

This is a great free attraction in the centre of Cheyenne. Follow the history of Wyoming and its people from the 1800's up to the present day. A wide range of exhibits from a dinosaur, guns, up to present day items and people. Fascinating.
