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.

This is actually two museums across town from each other but the $5 entrance fee gets you into both. One is devoted to the life and traditions of the Native Americans and the other to the early cowboy. We learned a lot from out little excursion to these two very well kept museums. The cowboy museum even has a dress... More

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
