Cozy and beautifully organized

This small Historical Society museum is a treasure. Had a thoroughly enjoyable hour here absorbing some of the history and tradition of Jackson Hole.

Staff was friendly and it didn't cost much at all. Too bad the displays were not well marked. Items on display were not identified,so I had no idea what I was viewing.

This was a very good stop. Not just for the bathroom, but for the info on the local wildlife. Guide was very helpful.

It may be small, however there are two. Didn't get to see the other was pressed for time with dinner reservations. It is interesting, but I wouldn't say its a must do, small admission fee.

For $5 you get admission to 2 museums. Both are small and about 2 blocks apart. Shows the history of the area, etc. More geared towards 6-15 yr old kids.

As others have said these are two small and slightly amateur museums (by chance we had visited the Green River Museum and concur with the views of the earlier reviewer). The separation of the "Indian" museum from the settler museum felt inappropriate, and also poor history (ie did these lives and history occur in isolation from each other?). I note... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here! There are many exhibits that are very well done. It is reasonably priced and is really worth a stop. In fact, it is one of the nicest museums showcasing wildlife that I have seen!

I stopped by both museums on my last day in Jackson. One is about the history of Jackson Hole, but is only one room. However, it is set up nicely. The other museum is two blocks away. It covers the history of the Native American Tribes of the area. Large collection of arrowheads, as well as information about the Sheepeaters.... More

You stepped back in time - clothing, work tools what kind of housing and what kind of food. Animals that they had to be aware of - they really had to work very hard.

One museum is about the history of Jackson Hole and the second museum is about the history of the Native Americans of the area. Both museums were very interesting with several exhibits and artifacts.
