Located on the Wyoming State Fairgrounds in Douglas, the Wyoming Pioneer Museum is a must see for western history enthusiasts.
Among the collections you’ll find the infamous stock detective Tom Horn’s saddle, stories of area cowboy Wild Horse Robbins and his adventures on the range and an outstanding collection of American Indian artifacts. Rodeo contractor Charlie Irwin’s larger than life bib-overalls are always a favorite among children visiting the museum.
The Wyoming Pioneer Museum is also home to a tepee used in the movie Dances with Wolves. If you think tepee architecture is simple, be sure to read the information on what went into building a tepee to ensure its stability and the escape of smoke from the apex.
Open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. • Saturdays during the summer months, 1-5 p.m.
