Nice museum. Well put together with Old West history and very nice people. Outside the old depot you will find the famous Boots for a cool photo op.

Spent about an hour here trying to get to know Cheyenne better. This was amazing! I can’t think of a better way to do it. The buffalo, stagecoach exhibit, Indian and cowboy exhibits were fabulous! Best part is that it was free. Don’t miss this!!

...but I had such a blast! Lots of information here and lots of opportunities for interactive items. The Native American piece on the 2nd floor is worth the visit, alone. However, I was also quite partial to the dinosaur bones, too!

Cheyenne downtown is an easily walk able city. The museum is one street over from Capitol Ave ( the main road).

We showed up here looking for something to do while it was raining! It was a pleasant surprise! It was free! It was very informative and enjoyable. People were accommodating! Facilities were clean.

Took my nephews here to check out the museum. They do an excellent job if informing about Wyoming and the mant people who have helped to create the state to what it is today. The scavenger hunt makes it more interactive for children.

The museum exhibits artefacts over eons of time from dinosaurs to pioneer days and beyond. Free entry so good value and pleasant staff
