Great museum to stop at with very nice exhibits for all. Loved the trains and the old buildings. Worth the visit if you are in Centennial.

If it wasn't for the fact that there are every bit of 278 people in this little hamlet, you could be forgiven if you completely by-passed this Historical Museum on the outskirts of the burgeoning metropolis known as Centennial, Wyoming. The roar of the dense...More

This is a museum run by volunteers. It's a bit of a hodge podge of relics donated, but it tells a warm and realistic history of the establishment of Centennial. Don't miss it if you want to better understand the area.

Wonderful locally developed and supported museum that captures the material history of life and industry in this frontier town. Rail car (caboose), antique farming equipment, household and other artifacts are among the many fascinating items displayed.

This museum is staffed and run entirely by volunteers and you can tell they're really passionate about it. I was driving through on a Sunday and I was surprised to see that it was open because most of the museums in Wyoming are open Tuesday-Saturday....More
