Lots of history here and a FREE museum.

Besides the fact it was free, exhibits were well arranged and easy for a mobility impaired person to get around with ramps and elevators. Nice, big, clean restroom, too!

If you have 2 or 3 hours to spare take a look at the Wyoming State Museum. Old west history, American Indian exhibits, Military uniforms, and even recent events abound here. Check it out!

Really liked this museum better than thought! Arrived and there is plenty of street parking and nearby lots. Museum is free and you are greeted by friendly staff. Learned so much about Wyoming that I had no idea. Didn't realize how much coal and laundry room ingredients are generated by the state. Nice gift shop as well! 1 hr to... More

The museum does not take long to visit and has a nice collection of state historical items. Worth a couple of hours.

I was staying in Denver and decided to visit Cheyenne, Wyoming, since it is relatively close and I had never been to Wyoming. I quite by accident ended up driving up the last day of Frontier Days, a week long celebration with parades, concerts, rodeos and thousands of people shopping from street vendors and local shops. I arrived just in... More

A little bit of this and a little bit of that; Wyoming shares its history and some of its stories and characters in this museum. A lovely way to spend a few hours and learn a little more about the State of Wyoming before heading to the incredible national parks.

We were driving through and needed to stop and stretch our legs. Thought we'd check out this museum. We were pleasantly surprised at this great little museum. Perfect for kids and families. It was free and Mike the volunteer was excellent! We really enjoyed the history.

If you find yourself visiting Cheyenne, make sure to visit the Wyoming State Museum. It is FREE! There is a great variety of items to look at, as well as a fun kid's area. My children love to play make believe in the old cabin as if they were out on the prairie themselves.

This is a very nice museum, especially considering that the admission is free. My family stopped there on a whim while on vacation with the intention of stretching our legs and getting out of our vehicle for a little while. I am glad that we did, as it was my nine-year-old son stated that it was a high point of... More

Everything about this museum was perfect. For starters, parking and admission are free! The museum staff member Mike (I believe) was extremely friendly and helpful with my family. We spent about an hour walking through the museum at our own pace. We learned a lot and had a great time!
