We loved the museum and learning about the history of the area. They have interactive stations for the young ones. The ladies at the front were very welcoming.

This museum has something for adults and children alike. There's no admission charge, but you can donate if you wish. There's information on local industry, historical exhibits, and even a caboose that you can explore.

Worth the stop. Informative and full of local history. Admission is free and with hands on exhibits, this would be a good stop for families with young children

Nice museum, lots to see and learn. Shame that other museums who charge to get in are not as good as this one.

The Rockpile Museum is absolutely worth making time for in your visit to or through Gillette. Meticulously presented, the exhibits are visually engaging as well as informative. They cover a remarkable range of interests, from an extraordinary rifle collection to Triceratops fossils to coal-mining videos...More

Awesome look back on western history! My teenage girl loves this place. My grandfather homesteaded in Campbell County in 1920. I felt so connected to his life during our visit.

It was a couple yrs. ago now, but really enjoyed the variety of the old west. From firearms to old covered wagons it was a nice place to visit.

Was not expecting much...but what a surprise. All for FREE admission, they do have a jar for donations. This is a lot larger than expected. They had a nice gun display, the history of Gillette, videos on coal mining, chuck wagons, saddles, and much more....More
