Worth a visit on a rainy afternoon. Too politically correct. Misses the vigor and drama of the Old West.

Museum was an very good. It displayed the history and stories of the Cheyenne area and its people. There are examples of clothing, tools, weapons, firearms of the pioneers of Wyoming. The museum is free. Take your time to enjoy all the exhibits and read about the history of Wyoming.

This is a great museum especially for the downtown area. It has a lot of great information, about the area and different time periods and the Oregon Trail.

This museum is very clean and chocked full of information, and it's free! Hard to beat a free, informative museum! They also have special exhibits, and a place for children to have hands on experiences regarding the old west!

This museum is good for families with children of all ages, from touch displays to a wild west play area. This is a good way to spend some time learning about the state of Wyoming.

Easy parking around the museum. A good overview of Wyoming history. Children will love it with a western play area and period clothes to change into. Look for the mystery item and get your wooden nickel. The museum is free and is a great way to present history to the public.

I am used to grand experiences like The Field Museum in Chicago or the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, but this was a really pleasant small museum.
