For such a small town, this is a great museum that focuses on two specific themes: paleontology and settlement of the region. Both have very good displays. When we went, there were two temporary exhibits: ghost towns of wyoming and silk screen tipis of the...More

What a gem. All in a not overly busy area, on a truly memorable ride along a historic highway. Make time to stop to see the history we miss in our busy lives.

It was a nice stop on our way to Yellowstone. I learned some history about this area of Wyoming that was new to me. Short and sweet visit. Got the senior citizen rate which made it worthwhile.
