Located in Saratoga, Wyoming, the Saratoga Museum houses an impressive collection of over 10,000 artifacts and 5 rotating exhibits.

 

Open seasonally from Memorial Day weekend through September, the Museum houses the most diverse geological collection in the state of Wyoming with minerals and gems ranging from India to Antarctica. When you visit, you’ll learn about the creation of Saratoga and Wyoming from it's early geology through the pioneer settlers to modern times.

Current Exhibits

 

Housed in Saratoga’s original 1915 Union Pacific Railroad Depot, the Saratoga Museum's exhibits feature the area's geological uprising and prehistoric past, the determination of pioneer men and women who settled the West, and how the arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad brought commerce and industry to the Valley.
