We had a very good time here. Was interesting to see more history. Stop in and enjoy the hospitality. Was well worth the stop.

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.

I loved this museum so much! The Indian music in the basement was a little annoying, but the artifacts were intresting. It had all these little 'rooms' set up to look like what they would look like in the olden days. No interactive things. Little ones should not go, because they would be tempted to touch. Very cool museum overall... More

I love the recreations within of various business such as a post office, a bank, a jail, and different rooms of a typical house in the 1800s Wyoming. Bought a cookbook called "Chuck Wagon Cookbook." Will try some of the recipes and report back.

They crammed a lot of stuff into this museum. Look close, otherwise you will miss something. It is a great museum to learn about the area.
