Learn about pioneer heritage in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Pioneer Memorial Museum began with an association formed in 1884 called the Wyoming Pioneer Association. This organization aims to preserve Wyoming's pioneer history. The museum was a log cabin built in 1927, which was replaced in 1956, and has been enlarged 3 times. It is located on the Wyoming State Fairground in Douglas, Wyoming. The museum is dedicated to documenting the past and has an extensive collection of historical items. The memorabilia helps visitors imagine what it was like to live as the pioneers did. The land was hostile, the buffalo roamed free, and the Native Americans were living nearby.

The Pioneer Museum has 2 floors full of significant items from the early settlers and the Plains Indians. Admission is free. Visitors enjoy the Native American artifacts, the one-room schoolhouse, the early day bar, a doctor's buggy, a historic cabin, wagons, historic photographs, and for fun: a teepee from the movie "Dances With Wolves." The museum also has a gift shop where you can purchase souvenirs.
