Grand Opening

What geographic area does the Museum cover?  Is it "just" the town of Cody?

NO -- we are including all areas within the Fire District #2 (which is also the school district, the conservation district, etc.) -- so, the Northfork, Southfork neighborhoods, as well as out the Greybull highway and up to Crandall.

​​Yes -- History Takes Time!

Dedicated community volunteers have been working on opening this Museum since 2007 -- with many challenges along the way.  Summer 2018 is our target for the Grand Opening -- but watch for some special events before then -- like a Preview Event in early May.
