State Museum to present Ice Age Family Day event


The Wyoming State Museum will kick off 2022’s Family Day schedule with “Ice Age” on January 8, from 10 am to 2 pm. 

This all-ages event will explore what life was like during the North American Ice Age, when glaciers covered huge portions of the continent in ice as tall as mountains.

Despite harsh conditions and freezing temperatures, plant and animal life thrived. With games, activities, crafts, and up-close encounters with our museum collections, kids and families will learn about Ice Age culture, ancient animals like mammoths and saber tooth tigers, the domestication of dogs, and more! Plus, meet archaeologists from the Office of the State Archaeologist and hear stories from the Laramie County Library.

In order to keep everyone safe, the museum will require timed registration to participate in this event. Families can find the registration link on the homepage of our website ( or they can use this link to go directly to the registration form ( Register by phone at 307-630-2573.
