Sweetwater County Historical Museum Is Officially Open

The Sweetwater County Historical Museum in Green River reopened to the public on Monday, June 15. Please be aware of the following health and safety guidelines.
Museum Director Brie Blasi said that full measures will be in place to ensure the safety of Museum visitors.

Blasi explained that Museum staff spent the last week reorganizing the gallery to open up space and create a new one-way tour route marked by arrows on the gallery floor.

Only two groups or parties will be admitted to the gallery at a time. Once those group have completed their tour, the next can begin their own visit.

"Our goal is to keep the experience of a tour of the Museum as normal as possible for everyone," Blasi said. She encouraged anyone with questions to contact the Museum at (307) 872-6435 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
