Trek with a Museum Guide in Wind River Country

A visit to museums in Wyoming’s Wind River Country/Fremont County can be more than historical exhibits inside. Three museums in the area offer experiences that take the curious out into Wind River Country to interact with the history, culture and environment.

The Adventure Trek Series, sponsored by the Wind River Visitor’s Council, provides opportunities to walk in the footsteps of the rugged and independent people who discovered, settled and continue to call “home,” the extraordinary Wind River region.

All three Fremont County Museums in the county hold events in the Adventure Treks Series. Be sure to check the hosting museums’ calendar for the most up-to-date information about an event.
