It would be worth the stop and visit this museum. It's located in the fair grounds in Douglas, just off one of the main roads. It's got all kinds of cool and interesting facts and items. It's got several rooms and two floors. The ladies that were working when we visited were very friendly and informative. The best thing is... More

We didn't want to leave Wyoming without seeing a Jackalope and getting our picture with it. Okay, it was a huge one outside the museum(made out of plaster). We walked in some of the trains in the area and the two people we met working there were so friendly and informative about the History around the area.

Even if you aren't a history buff, you will be impressed by the sheer amount and variety of the collection, encompassing... More

It is layed out nicely and very clean. It contains a nice collection of local Wy Western antiques. It's a must for those who like western history. Set a side enough... More

I really did not want to go to another pioneer museum, as we have seen so many, but it was something to do. What a pleasant surprise! Museum is very extensive and covers many aspects of Wyoming history in a clear, well organized manor. It was much bigger than we thought and we could have allotted more time. Very clean... More

I thought we would be in and out, but two hours felt like we rushing it a bit. This museum was an interesting contrast to the Buffalo Bill Museum up in Cody a few day ago. The Cody is extremely well funded, excellent and super slick, this one is home made and a bit funky and chock full of every... More

From all sorts of early guns to the original teepee from Dances with Wolves it seems like they have everything here. 2 or 3 floors with a half of dozen rooms full of unique items that I have never seen before I will visit this place again
