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 thrilled to announce a grant award of $11,388 from the Wyoming Arts Council through the National Endowment for the Arts and Wyoming State Legislature. This grant will assist in funding numerous visual, performing, and folk arts throughout the next year, as well as education programs for children and adults. Thank you, Wyoming Arts Council!
