CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) If you want to check out Fort Caspar before the outdoor fort buildings close, you might want to stop by Sept. 28. It will be the museum's third Community Free Day this year.
A gun on display at Fort Caspar Museum's “The Good, the Bad, & the Banned: A Selection of Firearms from the Collection” exhibit in Casper, Wyo. on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019.
It will also be the final free day before the outdoor fort buildings close Oct. 1. The museum will also close three exhibits, “Reflections of Casper, Then & Now: Artwork by Suzette McIntyre,” “The Puppet Playhouse” and “The Good, the Bad, & the Banned: A Selection of Firearms from the Collection,” before the next free admission day, Dec. 7.
"It's an opportunity to come see some exhibits before we start to change those out because come October, we'll start working on installing new exhibits in the museum. So it's a chance to see some of the stuff we have up before it gets taken down and traded out for something different,” Fort Caspar Museum Director Rick Young said.
Museum admission for non-members between May and September costs $4 for adults and $3 for seniors and teenagers. Admission for kids 12 and under and Fort Caspar members is free.
This is the first year of Fort Caspar’s Community Free Days. Young said the first two were successful.
