This is one of better and more interesting museums in the Cheyenne area. Lots of artifacts from the history of the Equality State. Somewhat off the beaten track, so be sure to get good directions or use your GPS. Definitely worth the time and minimal...More

The collections are super well done. Lots of various wildlife trophies that really allow those of us from back east to grasp the size of wildlife. Beautiful collections of butterflies, stones, transportation modes and many, many other things. Some beautifully restored carriages, cars (ever earn...More

This is a very well put together museum. Lot's of great things to see and definitely worth going to. There is no admission charge, but a $5 donation is accepted (well worth it). The museum is part of a storage unit buildings, so we actually...More

Traveling thru and made a point to see this museum. Easy to locate and fun to see all the items the owner has collected over the years. Myriad things to see, from jugs, cars, carriages, clothing, whole room set-ups to trophy mounts. There has to...More

This is a museum everyone should visit! It has preserved so much of our western history. There are beautiful, clean, well kept items of history that we found so very interesting! Seeing things up close puts things into prospective as to actual size...instead of what...More

No, this isn't a big city museum with a large board of directors place. It's quaint, quiet, out of the way and if you didn't know what you where looking for, you'd pass it on the road. From the outside it is nothing special and...More

The museum is hardly conducive to a great experience. I did value my time and seeing the many antiques of the area or brought to the area. Although, the warehouse type museum and lighting was poor. I understand the environment needs to be just right...More

This Museum is such a surprise. Great collection of western memorabilia. Love the collection of saddles. Many historic wagons and this museum provides an incredible view of the early life of Wyoming ranchers. Thanks to the Messengers for sharing their passion for western history.

One of the most intersting museums of horse drawn carriages we have visited. Extensive collection of restored carriages, providing a wonderful history of Cheyenne. The only drawback are the hours of the museum which vary from day to day.

There is no entrance fee, but they want a donation of $5 per person. You can read my review of the place. I went there the last week in 2014. I recommend the Wyoming State Museum in downtown Cheyenne. Cheers John
