Overview

History doesn’t have a state line; the historical aspects of the west can be seen in the Crook County Museum &Art Gallery in picturesque Sundance, Wyoming right off of interstate 90. The History of Crook County is depicted in the many dioramas and exhibits, over 7000 artifacts, which are housed in the lower level of the Crook County Court House. The original court room where the Sundance Kid had his trial is on display in one of our permanent exhibits along with a gun exhibit that is phenomenal. Experience a walk through time in the replica barn and stable with its buggy and work tools. Glance in the bunk house that has all the amenities a cowboy bachelor could want. Listen for the sounds of stampeding buffalo hooves as you look at the Vore Buffalo Jump diorama with all its grand archeology discoveries. Go on an adventure of a lifetime with Custer and his men as they trek through the Black Hills in the Expedition of 1874. Follow the trails and the tribulations of his men as they fight for survival against nature, the illicit miners, and the natives.

I have been there but my wife had not. I enjoyed the second time as the first. My wife was very pleased with the Museum and its staff. This Museum is a must if your in the area so much local and State history.

What a great way to spend a couple of hours. The museum has lots of great antiques. The videos about Devils Tower and the buffalo jump were very interesting. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to visit.

Nice local museum gives insight to the early days of Sundance. This museum now in the basement of town building, hoping to move to old high school building. Support them to make the move possible! Lots of info about the trial of the "Sundance Kid"!
