Family Programs

The Wyoming State Museum’s family programs impact more than 3,500 community members each year. These unique programs allow families of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds to engage with the museum while learning, creating, and playing. Whether they are enjoying Family Days on the first Saturday of each month, or trick-or-treating through Halloween at the Museum, families can always find something fun at the Wyoming State Museum.

Halloween at the Museum







Halloween at the Museum

Date: October 30th, 2022

Time: 12:00PM – 4:00PM

Experience the magic of the past by trick-or-treating through history.

Our Halloween at the Museum celebration is one of our biggest events of the year! Each year, more than a thousand community members come to the museum to experience history brought to life. Volunteers fill the museum, dressed as some of the most amazing figures from history. Guests can see our world-class exhibits, interact with historic characters, and get up close to phenomenal artifacts from Wyoming's past. 

Every kid who participates gets a bag of trick-or-treat candy, generously provided by our sponsors.
