This is a nice rest stop plus it has a Wyoming welcome center inside. Get your brochures and coupons here. There is also a really nice little museum. It's easy to reach from I25 and I80.

Much more than just a Welcome Center, it has exhibits and a very knowledgeable staff well versed in Wyoming history, geography, and current events. Maps and brochures are available, most are free as of course is admission to the facility.

The architecture of the building is gorgeous. Its only a few years old and has history of Wyoming, photo op sections, a mammoth skeleton and 3D displays of things to do in Wyoming. I read that the building cost $12 million. It looks worth every...More
