Howdy! From Big Wonderful Wyoming Exhibit at the Rockpile Museum

The Wyoming State Museum’s traveling exhibit, Howdy! From Big Wonderful Wyoming, will be on display at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum in Gillette from June 4th to September 2023. 

This exhibit considers the postcard as a communication device and advertiser of Wyoming's natural and cultural landscape. Color and black and white images illustrate how postcards have promoted Wyoming as a "vacation dreamland" and a "wonderland of the West."

The Wyoming State Museum offers travelling exhibits for rent free of charge to museums, libraries, and other cultural institutions. For rental or exhibit information please contact Carlos Santos, Curator of Exhibits, at
