The 125th Anniversary exhibit at the Wyoming State Museum just added the turbulent 1960s. From Vietnam War to the burgeoning Civil Rights movement, this decade brought a lot of changes to the country and our state. Of course not all things during the 60s were about strife and conflict. One of the objects in this week’s installation is a football commemorating 1968 Sugar Bowl. Although they did not win the Bowl that year, 1967-1968 was a great season for the Wyoming Cowboys.
Join us here at the Wyoming State Museum as we begin our look back at 125 years of Wyoming Statehood through the collections of the Museum. From April 13th until July 5th, 2015, we will put on display one artifact from the collection representing each year, with a new decade on display every Monday! Here’s just a taste of what’s going on display today! #WyomingWhiskey
We are just three weeks away from completing our 125th Anniversary exhibit. This week we are focusing on the turbulent 1910s. From the first World War, to the deadliest global pandemic of Spanish flu, the decade changed the world forever. One of the objects in this week's installation is one of the original Lincoln Highway state line markers used on the state border.
