JUNE 3, 2023: Oregon Trail

Pack your wagon and get prepared for a trip on the Oregon Trail! The Oregon Trail brought 300,000 immigrants out west on a long, risky journey that made its way through Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon. The trail left its mark on the west, and you can even see real Oregon Trail wagon ruts in Wyoming today. Join us to learn about the journey and see if you have what it takes to survive the trail yourself!

JULY 15, 2023: Dino Day

Nothing can tricera-top a Wyoming State Museum annual Dino Day! Look up at our “field of dinos” to see how tall (and small!) some of your favorite dinosaurs were, explore a tunnel through time, meet experts from Fossil Butte National Monument, and check out our brand new Prehistoric Wyoming Exhibit. Plus, enjoy delicious summer treats from The Flavor Station, make dino-themed crafts, and “say cheese” in the photo booth.
