Each of these stops in the Capitol Square District of Cheyenne are FREE to visit! In addition, Wyoming State Parks has a “Be a Junior Historian” program with a mini-curriculum of questions to guide your visit to the Capitol, Historic Governor’s Mansion, and Wyoming State Museum. (Hot Tip: The website states if you share answers with site staff, you receive a prize!) The locations are within easy walking distance of one another and each site offers additional learning opportunities…
Wyoming Game and Fish & Wyoming State Parks
From September 1 thru August 30 of each year, Wyoming State Parks participates in the “Every Kid Outdoors” which admits current 4th grade students and their families into 400 national parks and millions of acres of Federal lands and waters, including all of Wyoming's State Parks! With both Curt Gowdy State Park and Quebec 01 State Historic Site just 30 minutes away from Cheyenne, they are a great option to incorporate into your journey! Don't have a 4th grader? Visit Cheyenne's Legendary Pass includes both State Park sites too!
