My husband and I visited both museums in Jackson Hole and loved both. If you like history or just want to know more about the area you are in this is a must visit place for you. Extremely interesting and well laid out from American Indians

There are two small museums both in the central downtown area. One focuses in Native Americans and the other on settlers. One ticket buys access to each. Both were excellent, with a wealth of detail and a good range of exhibits that brought the story of this isolated valley (or 'hole') to life. There are many cameos that bring colour... More

Entrance fee is five dollars but you get to go to two museums. Both are very small but well worth a look. They have Native American artifacts and plenty of taxidermy animals. Well worth it to stop in and check them out.

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
