This not-so-small local museum sets out the growth of Lander and the surrounding area. VERY well done.

Thanks for stopping. We are glad you enjoyed the museum. We do receive good support from our community for the Pioneer Museum. Fremont County has two other County supported museums, the Dubois Museum: Wind River Historical Center and the Riverton Museum. Thanks again for visiting.

This was a small and great museum, worth spending an hour looking around. There was a wide range of exhibits of the history if Lander and all visitors would find something interesting. Pleasant and helpful staff. Free, and can make a donation.
