3rd Grade History Fair
The museum has reimagined their traditional 3rd grade history tours and created an interactive History Fair that incorporates hands-on activities to bring history alive. It usually occurs the second week of May.
All other grades may request a traditional gallery, downtown, or courthouse tour by contacting us and scheduling a tour time.
We offer in person and digital outreach to age groups for schools in both Sweetwater County School Disctricts. If you are looking for a particular topic for your class please let us know, and we will see if we can produce a resource for you.

Sweetwater County is over 10,000 square miles. In order to better serve the entire community, the museum has developed several off-site exhibits around the county. Currently, we have exhibits at the Rock Springs airport, Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County, and the Superior community center. We are currently developing other off-site exhibits. Please check our news page regularly for updates. The Reliance Tipple, featured at left, is owned by the museum. This is one of only two coal tipples left in the state and is the only metal one. The tipple is not open to the public but there are interpretive signs around the exterior for more information about its history.
