Great WY calendar available for purchase. Wished there had been a native am. one, too. Great price for two museums. Loved the young "guide" in the Native Am. museum. He was Aztec-Mayan. Could enhance experience in both museums by having custumed interpreters/custumed "shows" depicting life/incidents/characters, etc. Could charge extra for these specials. Just an idea...

We went to the Museums by family likes to check out small town museums and this one was interesting. They had some interesting facts about the town and settlers. I thought it was cool you got admission into two museums for the price of one we paid 10$ for 2 adults 1 kid and an infant. The other museum is... More

Two museums for the price of one and some great local history and color. We love the small hometown flavor of the museums and found the exhibits interesting. Great place to stop in when its raining.

Worth a stop on the trail to discover the lives of the early settlers in Jackson and the surrounding area.

This museum isn't very big, but the displays are very informative. I especially liked the cabin and the camping mock-ups which really showed you what life was like during the early days of white settlement in Jackson Hole. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and explained anything that wasn't clear. Do not miss going through the hallway that leads to... More

Staff were friendly and informative. Displays of local history and living conditions were well put together and interesting. two locations on for settler history and another for local Indian culture. Both were well worth the visit

We were able to see both museums for $5. The photographs are wonderful and show a past time when Jackson was a western, ranch town instead of the current tourist, transplanted yuppie town. The lady in the book shop recommended some great reading material on old Jackson and even gave us a poster of the Tetons.

This is such a fun museum--great way to learn how early settlers survived the harsh winters Jackson Hole evinced. Incidentally, it started pouring while we were in the museum... As we prepared to walk back to our hotel in the rain--only one of us had a w Waterproof windbreaker on, the museum hostess took pity on us and called our... More
