Jackson Hole Historical Society And Museum

The Jackson Hole Museum began in 1958 as a private history museum to house the lifetime collection of W. C. "Slim" Lawrence. The collection contains upwards of 12,000 artifacts, featuring an outstanding collection of Native American pottery, weapons, and stone tools. Important collections include fur trade era tools and firearms and material culture from the pioneer settlement era as well as other objects of antiquity.

We hope you enjoy our work.
