Casper Museum Consortium

The Consortium came together in 1998 as a joint venture between the City of Casper and the Natrona County School District with the common goal of marketing the top-notch facilities we have in Casper to both in and out of town visitors. We have grown into a relevant and useful organization in this community.

Fort Caspar Museum

Native Americans, mountain men, fur traders, emigrants and the U.S. Army all visited or lived in the Casper area during the mid-1800s. The region was a crossroads for the Oregon Trail, the Mormon Pioneer Trail, the California Trail, and the Pony Express Trail, vital westward migration routes that shaped U.S. history.

 

Today, the site consists of the reconstructed fort, reproductions of the Mormon Ferry and Guinard’s Bridge and a museum featuring regional history. Explore the new permanent, temporary and traveling exhibits.
