School groups are welcome throughout the year, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We recommend that you contact us at least three weeks in advance to schedule your visit. Scheduling your visit ahead of time helps us plan programs specific to your needs and helps control the number of students in the Museum at one time. This is extremely important from January through June when over 1,000 students can visit the Museum each month. Scheduling a visit also helps us ensure a quality educational and enjoyable experience for all Museum visitors. The Museum also has a variety of programs and resources that are available for use in your classroom.

[ Discovery Trunk Program ]
The Discovery Trunk Program is part of the Wyoming State Museum's education outreach service. This program is designed to complement the teaching of Wyoming history and history of the American West. Discovery Trunks helps create a unique and challenging learning environment that enhances traditional classroom instruction. The program enables students to better understand and appreciate the history and people of the West through hands-on experience with historical objects. Each trunk contains hands-on reproduction artifacts and a Teacher's Guide (including lesson plans, a description of the artifacts, student activities, and a bibliography). The Museum has trunks available on the following subjects:
- Frontier Army
- Mountain Man
- Plains Indians
- Wyoming Trails
- Wyoming Archaeology
To request a trunk, fill out and submit a scheduling form to Nathan Doerr, Curator of Education, as indicated on the form. For questions, please contact Nathan at (307) 777-7021 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
