Casper's Museums

There are plenty of museums in Casper that will fascinate and educate every member of the family. The Nicolaysen Art Museum brings a diverse range of work from local artists, as well as regional, national and internationally renowned artists. The Corridor Gallery or the Goodstein Visual Arts Gallery boast prime examples of art with western themes.

Take a trip back in time at the Fort Caspar Museum, or visit The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, one of Wyoming's finest museums that allows the visitor to experience what pioneer life was like for the early emigrants traveling on the Oregon Trail, California Trail, Mormon Trail, Bozeman Trail, Bridger Trail and Pony Express Trail. Just to the east across Beartrap Meadow on Casper Mountain, the lucky explorer will find Crimson Dawn Park & Museum. The folksy, primitive museum is open to the public during the summer.

The Werner Wildlife Museum will educate the family about wildlife indigenous to Wyoming; the museum also includes specimens from all around the world. Interact with dinosaurs and learn about Wyoming's unique geology at the Tate Geological Museum. Whatever your particular interest, there's a museum in Casper for you!
