“Intresting small museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

We signed up fo a geological walk in the wind river area. It was very fun! Hiked back to some beautiful falls and had a very knowledgable guide named Sally who was passionate about geology. The museum has many unusual displays related to the Sheepeater tribe of people. They also have some great taxidermied animals, we found it very interesting.

Friendly people and a very interesting little museum. Spent nearly an hour there and totally enjoyed every minute. It's free to get in and I guarantee you will want to make a donation on leaving

“Little bit of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

Nice stop over. A lot of local history. We really enjoyed the local cabins that had been moved and the history of the area. The curator, Mary Jane, was very informative.
Would recommend this to anyone passing through Dubois.

“Don't Miss Museum Saturday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

This is a wonderful and well kept museum featuring local historical and natural displays both indoors and outdoors. Every (mid)July there is a special Saturday for Museum Day in which homemade stew, fry bread, bakery items etc. are for sale and/or donations with live music and folks often in period costumes showing craft skills. This is a better-then-you-might-expect place to visit, including with the kids.
