Wyoming State Museum’s Travelling Exhibit “Miss Yamanashi: Wyoming’s Friendship Doll from Japan” is on its way to THE Carbon County Higher Education Career and Technical Education Center in Rawlins.

This exhibit tells the story of the Friendship Doll exchange program between Japan and the United States in the 1920s. Miss Yamanashi was a gift to the people of Wyoming from the children of Japan. Several panels of color photographs detail her traditional clothing and accessories.

The Museum makes traveling exhibits available to museums, libraries, schools, and other cultural institutions throughout the state of Wyoming. Our exhibits, which consist of photographic panels and text, allow local institutions to attract new visitors by highlighting various aspects of Wyoming history and culture.

The exhibit will be on display at the Carbon County Higher Education Career and Technical Education Center from June 17 to September 11. Please contact Jennifer Moore at (307)328-9274 for more information.
