About - Wyoming Pioneer Memorial Museum

Located on the Wyoming State Fairground in Douglas, WY, the Wyoming Pioneer Memorial Museum is dedicated to the documentation of the past. This fine western history museum houses one of the largest collections of historical memorabilia, which will stir your imagination and take you on a trip back through time to an era when buffalo roamed free, the Indians were the undisputed rulers and the pioneers struggled in a hostile and uncharted land.

The original Wyoming Pioneer Memorial Museum was built in 1927. The log structure was used until a new modern facility was erected adjacent to it and dedicated in 1956. Since then the museum has been enlarged three times.
