Wyoming State Museum reviews
Went with the family and pretty much we were the only ones there on a Friday afternoon. Again best part, it's free. So much history. Definitely for all ages. Well done Cheyenne. Well done. more »
I didn't visit the Museum but have to use this title as Trip Advisor won't allow me to list the Wyoming State Archives...their bad. Anyway, the State Archives are located inside the State Museum... more »
This museum is wonderful. There is something for everyone! Earth science, natural history, history, anthropology... It's a great place to spend an afternoon.
I can't believe it's been that long since we have been here. They added so much since the last time. We had other plans so we didn't have a lot of time and were only able to see the interactive room and it was neat. Fun for the whole family. The front best lady was very kind as well. We will be back again. This place is a must see!
