Welcome to the Washakie Museum & Cultural Center
The Washakie Museum and Cultural Center brings the past to life using fascinating exhibits to portray the relationship between the historical people of the Big Horn Basin and their environment. The unique geography of the Big Horn Basin and its world-class archaeological sites allow the Museum to offer one of the finest interpretive centers for local human history, from ancient mammoth hunters through early settlers, as well as the geology, archaeology, and paleontology of our area. The Museum also serves as a center for the visual and performing arts, conferences, conventions, and other gatherings.
We are pleased to announce two recent grant awards: US Bank has awarded the Washakie Museum a grant of $2,000, to help support the annual Black Tie to Blue Jeans and Fall 2019 theatre production. The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has awarded the museum $1,500 for the upcoming theatre production of Blithe Spirit in October. Thank you, US Bank and Rocky Mountain Power Foundation!
We are now accepting artist applications for the 7th Annual Mammoth Quick Draw on Friday, November 9!
