The Little Snake River Museum is a local history museum dedicated to preserving the history of this remote ranching community. It is open from the end of May through "some cold day in October". Nearly everything in the museum has been donated by local residents. There are over 17 structures housing numerous historical exhibits on pioneers, outlaws, ranching, mountain men, wild horses antique vehicles and much more. With a shady picnic area, hands-on homesteader house, costumes for dress-up and other craft activities, the museum makes a great family stop.

The museum also hosts numerous events throughout the year and leads field trips to historic sites throughout the summer.

Make sure that you have a few hours to walk around, there are so many wonderful pieces of history at this museum. Staff is very knowledgeable about the homesteads that have been moved and restored. Many little artifacts that you have never seen.

What a surprise out in the middle of nowhere. We happened up on their last day open for the season. Lots to see inside the old school. Very large collection of memorabilia from Wyoming and the specific time period. Take your time seeing everything. Looks like a wonder veterans memorial will be finished for dedication in May 2017.

We happened upon this museum by accident. Saw a sign along the road and we needed a potty stop anyway. Plus it was free! And what a gem! We have been to dozens of museums large and small, big city and small town, and this ranks up there with the best. We just love small local museums run by the... More

We happened upon this museum purely by accident, but it was the highlight of our vacation trip. The various homes and buildings (some brought here from just down the road) were complete with authentic furnishings, including many household and personal items. We truly felt like we were stepping across the threshold into peoples' homes and they'd be there waiting to... More

This place is amazing! 15 buildings mostly set up as they were in their time-- many with items that belong in those buildings or to the people who owned the home or business! The fact that they have so much in this place is truly amazing! Savery is out of your way -- I guarantee it, unless you live there... More

Stopped by the museum yesterday. There are several buildings filled with antiques. The docents are happy to share the history of the area. Despite the out of the way location, the docents and volunteers take pride in this museum. The Baker cabin alone was worth seeing. This museum is worth a visit.

My wife and I stumbled across the Little Snake River Museum while on a wandering motorcycle trip of four western states in July, 2014. This little gem turned into one of the highlights of our journey.

Amazing and wonderful!! It is unbelievable that this tiny community has provided such an outstanding glimpse backward in time. The location is picturesque, and the individual "houses" are beautifully furnished with authentic artifacts and furnishings. The curator and the staff are to be heartily congratulated.
