Staff and volunteers at the Museum at the Bighorns are busily planning a slate of new and returning favorite programs for the spring and summer. We'll kick off the season again with the pancake breakfast on Memorial Day Weekend. Come have a seat on our porch and get a good view of the annual Eaton's Horse Drive while enjoying hearty pancakes and coffee. We're also planning a variety of programming for children, families, and adults that includes demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Several programs will connect to the fossil exhibit, regional Indigenous history, and the days of early settlement.
In partnership with Sheridan College's Museum of Discovery, the Museum at the Bighorns is excited to announce the opening of a new fossil exhibit. Dinosaurs to Mammals: 150 Million Years of Wyoming Prehistory is a temporary exhibit featuring fossils that represent the great span of biological diversity found in northeastern Wyoming across the scope of geographic time. This exhibit has been supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.
