When the high light of this museum is a bar what message does this send to your kids.? Every small town in America has a museum just like this one poor lighting and dungeon like atmosphere .. The building looks like it is ready to fall down.

Not worth the money. Me and my family will never go back again. The people there not so friendly more on the rude. Next time I drive to the cody museum which is 100% better.

Dropped into this treat of a museum between lunch and an afternoon appointment. Like many museums we have visited in Wyoming we were bowled over by the love and pride the people working there had in the museum. The showpiece exhibit is the bar from the Hole in the Wall bar but there is much more, including a traditional Wyoming... More

They have an eclectic collection so there is something for everyone. They have a bench in the basement you can sit on to rest. Expect two hours to see everything and military get in free!

We found this place by accident as we were in town for one nite. What a treasure! A must see! Loved the Hole-In-The-Wall bar, a Yellowstone Carriage, many Wyoming historical items. The man who volunteered in running the place was a well of information. This is a must see!!!!

This museum is an understated gem! It should be the Wyoming state museum! It was huge-we didn't have time to see it all. Very kind people working there. I would absolutely recommend it.

I am surprised the previous reviewer says this is a small museum. OK it is not a big city museum but for a small to middle size city/town, it is amazing. Two large floors of very well displayed and documented material with dioramas, collections fullsized displays, make it arguably the best museum of its type I have ever been in.... More

If you are in the neighborhood it is a nice place to visit, but it is not a destination in itself. The boardwalk is nice and a dip in the pool also, but overall it won't take more than 1 hour.
