[ Letter to Teachers ]
Dear Wyoming Teacher:
It’s an exciting time in Cheyenne as we look toward the restoration and renovation of the Wyoming State Capitol and Herschler building. With that said, however, we also understand that the closure of the Capitol building will greatly impact field trips to the Capitol Complex in Cheyenne.
Although the Capitol is closed, and will remain closed for the duration of the project, we still invite you to bring your class to visit and experience the sites and processes of Wyoming’s Capitol Complex – home to Wyoming’s Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches – either individually or in any combination.
In order to assist you with planning your next classroom visit, here are some field trip options.
- Wyoming State Capitol (via The Wyoming State Capitol exhibit and program at the State Museum)
- Wyoming State Legislature
- Wyoming Supreme Court
- Wyoming State Museum
- Historic Governors’ Mansion
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of us. We all look forward to working with you to ensure that Wyoming’s students are able to learn, first-hand, about Wyoming, past and present.
