Extensive exhibits of life in the old West. Plenty of hands-on activities for kids. Wish I had more time to explore. Would go back if I'm in the area again

This is a nice place to stop in during a Cheyenne visit. You can park here, head over to the capitol, then come back and have a look around. It's not a particularly large museum, but it is two stories with a diverse collection. And, of course, it is free! They also have a great gift shop for picking up a few Wyoming souvenirs.

We had an extra day in our scheduled visit thanks to the govt shutdown of national monuments...so we went into city for the day. The Wyoming museum was a wonderful surprise. It is two floors of exhibits with plenty of touch it experiences for those who just have to touch history (smile). The front reception folks were a pleasure. There is a set of lockers in front so you don't have to shlep coats and bags. The museum is everything from economic to cultural history.

Takes about 2 hrs (read it all).

Near the capitol. Park and visit both for free. The museum is excellent for children as they have a scavenger hunt and objects to touch and feel.
