The Bozeman Trail Museum is housed in a hand-hewn-log blacksmith shop built in 1879 to serve pioneers on their way to the goldfields of Montana. The collection is centered around the Cloud Peak Boulder, a stone with names and dates apparently carved by military scouts just two days before the Battle of the Little Bighorn, which was fought less than 100 mi to the north in 1876. The staff is friendly to children and there are some old pipe organs that kids are encouraged to play.

For many years it was in Dakota Territory. With the birth of statehood in 1890, Wyoming, the 44th state, was divided into five counties running from north to south across the state.

The Wyoming Veterans' Memorial Museum is a non-typical military venue that is exclusively focused on the personal, intimate, and sensitive stories of the individuals who have participated in the military, military conflict and ancillary military services. This institution is not a warehouse for racks of weaponry and piles of gear. The museum is not micro-focused on an individual service, branch, or conflict.
