Territorial Prison Historic Site announces new Winter Hours

In response to the public’s request for winter hours and access, the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site in Laramie will now operate year round.  Starting Oct. 7, the prison and historic site will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 10 am – 3 pm.  Winter visitation hours will continue until May 1, when the site begins its summer season.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Wyoming State Parks to share this historic site’s story all year”, says Deborah Cease, superintendent. “In Wyoming tourism doesn’t end at Labor Day and winter visitors also want to experience culture and history, as well as recreational opportunities.” 

The museum and site will be closed on the following holidays: Thanksgiving (November 21 & 22), Christmas (December 25 & 26).
