We found ourselves in Cheyenne with time to spare so we went to the Wyoming State Museum. We were expecting it to be a hokey piecemeal thrown-together museum; instead, it was a delightful, informative, impressive, and well-curated museum.

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.
