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.
Work, Fight, Give | On display through August 16
Work, Fight, Give: American Relief Posters of WWII is the first exhibition to challenge our traditional memory of World War II, putting relief efforts at the forefront through an array of visually exciting poster art, poster stamps, photographs, banners, and programs issued by the various relief agencies and the National War Fund.
The Washakie Museum has received a grant award of $7,700 from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund! This grant will provide support for our first-ever Indigenous curated exhibit, opening in August, as well as public programs at the 3rd annual Indigenous Peoples Day event on October 9, 2021. Thank you, Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund!
