Wyoming State Museum


Visitors to Cheyenne, Wyoming have plenty of free entertainment to enjoy including the Wyoming State Museum. The state museum is housed in a 1950s building with the Wyoming State Archives, Museum Store, and administration services. The museum is located on the first floor to the right hand side when one enters. The hours of operation are 9am to 4:30pm daily.

Exhibits at the Wyoming State Museum include artifacts from the Merci Train, a train offered to the United States from France. Also on display are a Sharps Hunting Rifle from the 1800s, Shoshone bow and arrows, a big horn, bison, and golden eagle. Dioramas, old toys, stock certificates, and dinosaur bones are also on display. One of their prized dinosaur exhibits is a skull from an Allosarus found in 1991. There are two floors to the museum. On the second floor are baseball, police, and the Suyematsu Family exhibit. The Suyematsu family was the first oriental family to settle in Cheyenne. Also on the second floor is a telephone circa 1895.

On the first floor is a theater with a video. It is currently showing the Sheep Eaters, though the video can change regarding different history of Wyoming.
