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.
EXHIBIT SPOTLIGHT - On Display through 3/16:
The Fourth Grade Project
In the past decade, acclaimed artist Judy Gelles interviewed and photographed more than 300 fourth-grade students from a wide range of economic and cultural backgrounds. Their varied stories touch on the human condition and urgent social issues.
We are pleased to announce a grant of $2,500 from MDU Resources Foundation. This grant is in support of the museum's 3rd annual Indigenous People Day in October 2021. Thank you, MDU Resources Foundation!
