Museum, History

The Old West comes to life at the Hot Springs County Museum & Cultural Center. Belly up to the original bar where outlaws from the Hole-In-The-Wall gang once sat, including the infamous Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid! Though spirits are no longer served to patrons, it’s a great place to sit and imagine the sights, sounds and smells that once surrounded this icon from the past. Check out the original kitchen cabinet that once belonged to Cattle Kate, the only woman ever hanged in Wyoming. Walk through an old town setting where you can peer through the doors and windows of an old general store, doctor & dentist offices, a reconstructed jail, a newspaper & print shop, barber shop and much more.

Excellent collection

We love museums and this one didn’t disappoint. It had lots of history. The whole in the wall bar was amazing. I was surprised at how big the museum was. It was neat and well organized with labels and a bit of history about each piece. Friendly staff as well.
