wyoming peace officers museumThe Museum is housed in the Wyoming Frontier Prison which operated from 1901 to 1981. It is dedicated to the preservation and display of artifacts from Wyoming’s Law Enforcement history. Dedicated in 1998, it is the anchor component of the greatest monument to the law enforcement ever constructed in Wyoming.
