AAA Editor Notes
Wyoming State Museum, in the Barrett Building of the Capitol complex at 2301 Central Ave., features a variety of permanent and changing exhibits that allow visitors to delve into Wyoming's history.

The Drawn to This Land gallery catalogs the reasons people and businesses chose Wyoming as a place to flourish, and Swamped with Coal traces the development of the mining industry. Social history is the theme of the Living in Wyoming exhibition.

Visitors encounter a skeletal replica of a camptosaur—one of Wyoming's earliest inhabitants—in the R.I.P.-Rex in Pieces gallery; Wild Bunch focuses on other animals that have called the state home.

An interactive map pinpointing historical sites is the highlight of the Wyoming's Story collection; guns, a cowboy diorama and Native American baskets and jewelry are just some of the items on display in the Barber Gallery. Designed for the little ones, the Hands-on History Room has a kid-size tepee, a chuck wagon and a curiosity cabinet.

The museum is hosting the Wyoming State Capitol exhibit into mid-2019 while the State Capitol is closed for restoration.
