“Wonderful Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This museum is free, but I would gladly have paid to visit. It was wonderful--we spent a half day there, and that was a good amount of time. Our group had adults and a 10-year-old, and we all had a great time. There were exhibits on Wyoming history, native Americans, military history, cowboys, dinosaurs, guns, fashion, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something!

The gift shop was good as well--lots of unique choices in a variety of prices. The manager was friendly, and gave us some insights on other activities in Cheyenne. This museum is near the state capitol, so it is a fun day to do both activities in tandem.

“Great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here because we love to go to museums on vacation and this was a very special find. I learned so much about the state. The museum was very well laid out and the installations were very well done. I did find it odd that there is no mention of Dick Cheney or Alan Simpson as they are both prominent politicians from the state.

Spend a couple of hours learning about our 44th state. The museum is well done and appropriate for all ages.

“A great totally free museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We very much enjoyed the state museum, totally free including free parking and no pressure to make donations. They have lots of assorted exhibits about the old west. The people are very friendly. The city is the largest in Wyoming with only 70K people, so getting around is very easy.
