Much more than just a Welcome Center, it has exhibits and a very knowledgeable staff well versed in Wyoming history, geography, and current events. Maps and brochures are available, most are free as of course is admission to the facility.

Bu stopping there we were able to get brochures and magazines to help us find antique shops. They had excellent maps of Laramie and Cheyenne, and they were able to correctly answer questions we asked about distances between areas

Fantastic mammoth display, and the space seemingly purpose built for it! Really beautiful use of rammed earth exterior walls, too. Altogether the best welcome to state I've ever seen!
