General Info
Carbon County Museum in Rawlins, Wyoming collects, conserves, interprets and disseminates regional history to inspire Carbon County cultural entities and all learners-today and tomorrow. The museum envisions diverse but relevant experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds to learn about themselves and their world through the history of Carbon County. As of January 2013, the museum collection includes 30,000 objects, which have been stored and exhibited in a former church since 1976. It is the only museum in the county to be open year-round. Admission has always been free. Our galleries feature permanent exhibits on the history, industry, and residents of Carbon County, including natural history, Native American Indians, mountain men, pioneer trails, the Union Pacific Railroad, ranching, mining, and more. The museum is also home to the only Thomas Edison exhibit in Wyoming. Modern exhibits and programming provide visitors with diverse, accessible, and multisensory experiences. The museum opened its first dedicated hands-on educational and exhibit space for children, the Discovery Zone, in 2012. Since 2013, the museum has hosted the High Plains Powwow at the Carbon County Fairgrounds. This Northern Plains-Style indoor contest powwow remains our largest annual event.
