Come see us tomorrow during Wyoming's 125th Anniversary Celebration on July 10th! We have lots going on: 11 Wyoming authors signing books, our 125 Years of Statehood Exhibit, behind the scenes tours of the collections area, Hands on Wyoming History activities!
Every student in every grade, K-6, from Rossman Elementary School here in Cheyenne visited the Museum and participated in our educational programming. The programs varied by grade and explored dinosaurs, wildlife, Native Americans and the bison, Cheyenne history, Wyoming history, the legislative process, and the role artifacts play in museums. That made for a total of 18 programs presented to 366 students, teachers, and a few parents! Check out the article from the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.
