Thank you for your review! Our goal is to make each visit as fun and informative as possible. We are looking forward to adding some rotating exhibits so that items gathering dust in our archives get to occasionally make their way into the public eye. Hopefully you'll get to see some new things on your next trip through!! More

We just dropped in here and we're so pleased we did. It's only $5 per adult and it's quite incredible how many exhibits there are! Downstairs the exhibits are displayed to show life in various periods and we were very interested in virtually all that we saw. A great museum.

There is so much to see here. They are located on the site of the 'Hole-In-The-Wall Bar' where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and the Wild Bunch would visit and kick back a few. The downstairs area has a simulation of what it was like to walk down the wooden sidewalks of Thermopolis in the Old West. Once you... More

We always try to see same, local museums because they feel so real and have so many different items in them. This place didn't disappoint. Five buildings full of donated and found items with a good dose of history spread throughout. Families donate pictures of their relatives and you somehow connect with those people upon viewing uncle Frank. The have... More

You have to stop in here. There are so many things to see. A highlight is the simulation of a western street, with board sidewalk and storefronts to look into. Be sure to cross the street and check out the other exhibit buildings as well.

This is a very nice local historical museum. The displays, as you would expect, are all about local people, places, events, and general stuff. There's a nice collection of stone artifacts from around the area. Very worth visiting!

This is a nice place to stop for the weekend and visit the old west of the past. This museum is bigger than you might think with lower level artifacts and collections of what used to be here 100 yrs or more ago. There is a small gift shop with local artisans work in Wyoming materials. The sage brush jewelry... More

So much information on this small town. There were a lot of mementos and pictures donated by townspeople. Inexpensive price for a couple of hours spent there. Lots of Native American artifacts and the collection of arrow heads is amazing! Had a nice talk with a couple of ladies setting up a distillery display.
