Carbon County Museum

Carbon County Museum

The museum contains collections of artifacts from Union Pacific Railroad which runs through the county, and the pioneers and outlaws who travelled the region decades before the tracks were laid.

It also has collections from important Wyoming residents, such as Verna Keays, designer of the state flag. It also has the only exhibit of Thomas Edison artifacts in the state. Edison, along with other scientists, visited Rawlins to study the lunar eclipse.

We hope you enjoy our work.
