Overview
More
The Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum is a non-typical military museum that is exclusively focused on the personal, intimate, and sensitive stories of Wyoming Veterans who have served in the Armed Forces spanning the Spanish-American War to the modern War on Terrorism. The museum covers all branches of service, all ranks and all conflicts as well civilian components such as the Civil Air Patrol, Cadet Nurses, Merchant Marines and the Civil Defense Agency to name a few. The museum was established in the original Enlisted Men's Service Club at the Casper Army Air Base, a WWII military training site that was activated on September 1, 1942 and decommissioned in March of 1945. Roughly 16,000 B-17 and B-24 bomber crewmen trained there during that time. From 1945 through the late 1960s it served as an Air National Guard training site for fighter squadrons and eventually became the Casper/Natrona County International Airport. The museum houses nearly 700 individual Wyoming Veteran's stories and over 25,000 artifacts spanning uniforms, photographs, archives, weapons and a library. We provide guided tours, hands-on activities and community presentations. We also participate in the Veterans History Project, through the Library of Congress. We are a research institution for the public with a full access policy.

While the museum is not really big, it did salute every war and every branch of service including the ladies of the Marine Corps, Navy, Army and Air Force. Admission is free but you can leave a donation. If you served, they saluted you.

Located near the airport, the museum is out of the way, but totally worth it. It's housed in an original building from when Casper was used as a high-wind training base. I love history, but not really military stuff. It was fantastic. The people there...More
