Review of Homesteader Museum

Homesteader Museum
Ranked #2 of 5 things to do in Powell
Attraction details
Reviewed June 2, 2015

Came across this museum by accident and what a find. Fantastic curator who told us lots about the area. There is every object imaginable in the main museum and it really gave a feel for the area, and then outside in the courtyard even more to explore. Nicely curated but not too precious. A brilliant find and Free entry too. A highlight of our holiday.

Spent several hours at the Homesteaders Museum in Powell. What a treasure! The curator was a wealth of information and spent time answering all our questions and sharing some wonderful local stories.

The main museum artifacts are beautifully displayed with plenty of room to browse through everything. More buildings outside amongst the wonderfully landscaped grounds. I've only been there once, but plan more visits now. Each time you go, I'm sure you will find and learn something new.

If you ever wanted to know more about how the west was homesteader this is a great place to visit. It is jam packed with local information as well as what made this area blossom in the early days. The old homestead out back is particularly eye opening!

I travel all over and love stopping in the small towns and visiting there museum's. This is a gem that sits quitely just off the highway through town. It is impressive how well done it has been at preserving the past for the area. Lots of photographs and stories to go with them. We found information on a town gone in history Cain,WY. The worker helped get us directions on how to find it and we enjoyed our side trip there. Old farm equipment is there and if you can't figure out how it worked just ask. Worth a little time to stop in and see the history for the area.
