Would highly recommend for both a historic and geographical perspective of the area. Allow plenty of time for this activity as once you get there, it's hard to leave.

We are so lucky to have this Trails Center in our community! History of the trails that came through our area (most of them did) with information about the settlers and the native americans at that time. Well worth the time to go through.

This museum gives a very good overview of the American migration westward in the mid 1800's. Definitely worth seeing as you pass through central Wyoming.
