    About Us

    The Old West comes to life at the Hot Springs County Museum & Cultural Center! Belly up to the original bar where outlaws from the Hole-In-The-Wall gang once sat, including the infamous Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid! Though spirits are no longer served to patrons, it is a great place to sit and imagine the sights, sounds and smells that once surrounded this icon from the past. Walk through an old town setting where you can peer through the doors and windows of an old general store, doctor & dentist offices, a reconstructed jail, a newspaper & print shop, barber shop and much more. Explore one of the largest Indian artifact collections in Wyoming, including two hide paintings! Also in the collection is an original petroglyph carved by early Native Americans. Do paleontology and geology strike your fancy? The museum also houses several prehistoric artifacts consisting of plant and animal fossils, including part of a leg bone from the Hadrosaur, one of the duck-billed dinosaurs, as well as part of a leg bone from a wooly mammoth. If the geology of this region interests you, we have an amazing display of rocks & minerals from the area including a very large quartz geode. This history of Hot Springs County would not be complete without honoring our veterans. We have cases full of artifacts from area soldiers who served in several conflicts over the years. To get an idea of vintage Hot Springs County, Wyoming, this museum is a must-see thing to do on your list. Check out the museum gift shop for some unique gifts & souvenirs!
