Hi Gupjohnson We are sorry to hear that our Museum wasn't what you expected it to be. We are a small, nonprofit organization. Due to space limitations, we can only display a few exhibits at a time. We try to tell a more full story...More

Interested in Jackson Hole history? Head to the JH Historical Society & Museum. Small but jack full of information. My favorite part was reading the local high school projects “How I Came to Jackson Hole”, entertaining & fascinating to say the least!

We enjoyed this small museum as much as anything we did in Jackson. It tells the history of the town of Jackson with many wonderful old photos. A very nice bookstore, too. And only $4 for seniors and $6 for others. A bargain.

The $4.00 admission price for Seniors was a nice surprise. The displays were informative about the history of the area. The staff was friendly!

A small but nice museum. We really enjoyed the displays. There is a good gift shop there also. Not the ordinary tourist type items. A must stop in Jackson Hole
