Our Mission

The mission of the Wyoming State Museum is to serve as an educational, historical, and cultural institution, whose goal is to collect, preserve, and interpret artifacts that reflect the human and natural history of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West.

Explore the Museum with our mobile scavenger hunt tour!

The FREE tour starts at the entrance to the galleries and covers the entire museum. As you go, you'll earn points and learn fun facts about each stop you make. You'll receive your final score at the end of the game and a keepsake with all of the photos you captured along the way.

Starting your free tour is fast and easy! Click here for instructions on downloading the Stray Boots app.

Gun Control Ordinances in the "Old West"

Presented by Dr. Phil Roberts, University of Wyoming History Department
