Virtual Trunks

The Wyoming State Museum’s Education Trunks provide hands-on learning to more than 4,000 students each year. A brand-new offering for the 2023-2024 school year are our Virtual Education Trunks! These trunks have 360-degree photos of the items contained in our Education Trunks, along with descriptions of each item. This way, students from across the world can experience the trunks in their classrooms. 

Additional Information:

As with all of our programs, our Virtual Education Trunks are completely free. Below you can see the trunks we have ready to go, currently. More will be added throughout this year.
