This is not a museum that will take all day to walk through, but it had more than we thought it would! It did a great job of walking us through the history of Wyoming. Not all of the museum is interactive, but there is a hands on section where you can dress up in different outfits that people in... More

We took our grandchildren to the museum, they really enjoyed it as well as us. The layout was great, the staff was super. Would recommend, there is no cost that is super with large families, there is a donation box. It is certainly worth dropping a donation as it is a very nice museum and has some really neat history...

This modest-sized museum has a bit of everything - natural history, cultural history, wildlife, minerals, the "old West", and when we visited it even had a pretty nice "Governor's" fine art show going on in the lobby. There also was a larger "temporary" exibit linking art and nature upstairs. It is located in the downtown complex of state government buildings... More

My nephew and I took his kids (girl 10, boy 8) here on a Spring Break trip through the western states. The museum was laid out in a very accessible way and the staff was very welcoming. There were a lot of things to engage the kids. When we entered, the attendant gave each of them a map showing items... More

I highly recommend going to the Wyoming State Museum! Everyone is different, but I suggest at least 2-3 hours to cover the entire museum, gift shop, and talking to the staff. The staff was very pleasant and nice! The cost is free, but donations are accepted. I highly recommend donating. The environment was very conducive to preserving the displays, antiques,... More

This is our "Go-To" Steakhouse in the Cheyenne area. The food is served hot and just the way you ordered it. The steaks are done to perfection, and we love the fresh veggies that are offered as sides. The Outback offers specialty drinks during the year, along with a great Happy Hour menu. The coconut shrimp are delicious, as are... More

Excellent displays of Wyoming history and people that settled the state. Art work and graphics of very high quality. Easy to view all areas in comfort.

Not only were the kids entertained for over 2 hours but we were able to learn so much about Wyoming and it's history. Clean and well put together displays were great. Some Indian bead work, geology and information about cowboys were nice displays. Gift shop is amazing, a little of the local art, some food and bath items and some... More

Touring our state museum is very aggravating. There is so,so,soooooo much rich history in this building. It. Is as thou the museum is for the purpose of appeasing staff and tolerating the public. It is not organized in a manner to enrich the public with its wealth of amazing history. The gal that runs the museum is so outgoing and... More
