Wyoming State Museum
Established in 1895 and located in Cheyenne, the Wyoming State Museum's mission is to educate the public about the history of the state and the Rocky Mountain West. It collects and preserves artifacts that reflect the natural, human and cultural history of these areas—from prehistoric times to the present. The museum has permanent, temporary, traveling and online exhibits and offers various educational and outreach programs such as lectures series, family days and school programs. The museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
