This trunk provides teachers with all the resources they need to teach their students about army life within frontier forts in the 1840s – the 1890s. It includes an army uniform, other clothing, bugle, canteen, medals, and other early soldier artifacts. It also includes a curriculum to help bring these artifacts to life.

Frontier Army Education Trunk:
Our education trunks are provided for free to all schools, and shipping is available for schools within Wyoming. Details of shipping are below.
Details on Trunk Shipping vs. Trunk Pick Up at the Museum.
- Pick up and drop off at the museum is free to every school! If you drive here, you can borrow the trunk!
- If your school is within Wyoming, but more than an hour and a half from the museum, the museum can pay to ship the trunk to you. But you must cover the cost of shipping back to the museum. The museum has a yearly budget allocated to shipping trunks; once that budget is depleted, shipping costs have to be covered by the school.
- The Museum does not ship trunks to schools within an hour and a half of the museum. However, pick up at the museum is always available.
- If your school is outside of Wyoming, you must cover the cost of shipping both ways. Additionally, we are limited to locations that North Park Transportation can deliver to. This usually includes Northern Colorado, Denver, and some other regional states. Check with the museum to learn more.
- The museum does not ship trunks to schools within an hour of the museum, but pick up is always available.
