My husband and I spent several hours here on a Saturday morning and loved it. The stories of the people seemed affectionately written (in one group photo of a 71st birthday celebration everyone in the crowd was identified by name). The displays were attractive and multi-sensory. The sound of our footsteps on uneven boardwalk as we viewed what things would... More

I was a bit disheartened to see a previous review from a lady upset there was a bar in the museum and "what kind of message does this send kids".... That "bar" is one of a kind. History at its finest. It is THE Hole in the Wall Bar. Yes, the one Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid bellied up... More

There is an obvious amount of effort and care taken in this museum. Thermopolis values its history very highly, and the exhibits assembled showcase that pride in the kind of delightful fashion only small museums can capture.

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.
