The Historic Governor's Museum is beautiful. The various rooms are restored to various time periods. The house still includes a Cold War bomb shelter.

This would probably only be on interest if you were into Western Americana, old Governor's residences or Wyoming History. Don't miss the fall out shelter in the basement.

Visit the Historic Mansion several times a year. It's free! The displays change every so often so I enjoy visiting whenever anyone comes to Cheyenne. There are stairs to climb and no elevators so be prepared. Make sure to go to each floor!
