Contains a wide array of cultural items ( Indian and European settler), and natural artifacts (animal, plant and geological.) Documents and pictures relay the storied history if this vast and sparsely populated state. You could easily spend a few hours here. Comparable state museums in Topeka, KS and elsewhere cost about 10 bucks per person. This one is free but... More

A large museum with many exhibits, particularly historic ones pertaining to the West. The building allows for easy access to the exhibits (and I am disabled). Entry is free and it would be a mistake to not include in your list of "things to do" while visiting Cheyenne

Excellent displays about Wyoming and Western development and history. Historic items upstairs brought back many memories. Special displays throughout the year are very informative. Exceptional atmosphere and building. Easy to locate with available parking.

As a tourist for many years and a past resident of Cheyenne, this is a must stop! Whether a family or individuals, go in and explore this place. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. The exhibits change in a timely manner. Many schools and educators use this place for teaching and observation. It is downtown and plenty of parking.

We had talked about stopping here many times before but never had the chance until Feb, of 2014. We were quite pleased with the variety and the set up I have a hard time walking but there are plenty of benches to sit and still see the exhibits. They range from early Wyoming history, Native American history and present day... More

We had just moved back to the area and looking to explore the area. My boys love museums and history. I had been to this while in elementary many years ago and remembered liking it. There is lots of really cool stuff to see and local history. My boys also loved at the end of our tour the Exploring history... More

So many of the displays belong at a rummage sale, not a museum. I wanted to get out of there as soon as I got there.

Extensive exhibits of life in the old West. Plenty of hands-on activities for kids. Wish I had more time to explore. Would go back if I'm in the area again

This is a nice place to stop in during a Cheyenne visit. You can park here, head over to the capitol, then come back and have a look around. It's not a particularly large museum, but it is two stories with a diverse collection. And, of course, it is free! They also have a great gift shop for picking up... More

We had an extra day in our scheduled visit thanks to the govt shutdown of national monuments...so we went into city for the day. The Wyoming museum was a wonderful surprise. It is two floors of exhibits with plenty of touch it experiences for those who just have to touch history (smile). The front reception folks were a pleasure. There... More
