We stopped in Rawlins, hoping to visit the jail. Unfortunately it was closed as they prepared for Halloween. We were happy to find this museum open. It was great! We have young kids who aren’t normally fans of a museum. This museum has a great little scavenger hunt to keep the kids interested and engaged. My kids loved it! It is bigger than it looks, and has tons of great historical items. Definitely worth a visit!

We were amazed at the artifacts from bygone eras. The staff was very cordial and welcoming. Brenda gave us more insight after our self-tour.

Coolest museum ever!! The history of Big Nose George fascinated both me and my boys. We still talk about it!! The lady who was working was wonderful and so full of information and enthusiasm!! The kids did a cool scavenger hunt and got a prize at the end. It was such a perfect stop after the long drive from Yellowstone!! Definitely a hidden gem!!

An exeptionally rich and interesting museum, well-kept, well-presented exhibits and friendly hospitable staff, not to be missed when in town, whether passing through or otherwise.

The Carbon County Museum in Rawlins, Wyoming is very nice. It is updated and free to get in (although donations are always very much appreciated). There is a small, one room school house on the property (they will unlock for you to look inside) and they also have an old, covered sheep wagon out front that you are able to check out too. I recommend going on the tour of the Wyoming Frontier Prison Museum down the street along with this (they give tours every hour).
