The Nici Self Historical Museum celebrates the history of the Centennial Valley, from ranching and mining, to timber and recreation. Our buildings include a 1907 railroad depot, a Union Pacific caboose, a beehive burner from a local lumber mill, a one room schoolhouse, a log barn, a blacksmith shop in the former fire station, a skid shack, and a small cabin from the University of Wyoming's former Rec Camp.

If it wasn't for the fact that there are every bit of 278 people in this little hamlet, you could be forgiven if you completely by-passed this Historical Museum on the outskirts of the burgeoning metropolis known as Centennial, Wyoming. The roar of the dense traffic (an average of about 5-7 cars per hour) could lead you to worry as... More

This is a museum run by volunteers. It's a bit of a hodge podge of relics donated, but it tells a warm and realistic history of the establishment of Centennial. Don't miss it if you want to better understand the area.

Wonderful locally developed and supported museum that captures the material history of life and industry in this frontier town. Rail car (caboose), antique farming equipment, household and other artifacts are among the many fascinating items displayed.

At the base of the Snowy Mountains in Centennial you will find this museum. It is run by donations & staffed by volunteers. It has limited hours, so you will need to plan accordingly. The 1st time we were in town, they were closed. The next time we planned our day, so we could visit here. There was a nice... More

This museum is staffed and run entirely by volunteers and you can tell they're really passionate about it. I was driving through on a Sunday and I was surprised to see that it was open because most of the museums in Wyoming are open Tuesday-Saturday. Not only was it open, but the volunteer at the front desk gave me a... More
