Werner Wildlife Museum

News and Updates


An exhibit of decorative arts and crafts celebrating life in Wyoming.

This show is open to Wyoming artisans who work with natural materials including but not limited to fiber, leather, bone, horn, wood, stone, gems, and metal.  Items which visually incorporate more than 5% manmade materials are excluded from the exhibit as are paintings and photographs.  Size constraints may apply due to space limitations.

Exhibit will run from April 13 through July 13, 2017.

The backyard garden, bird feeding station, and picnic area are now open as is the children’s interactive area, The Lair. The Museum and all events are free and open to the public.

The Werner Wildlife Museum was founded in 1964 by Herman Werner. In 1970, Werner donated the building and collections to Casper College. Over the intervening decades, the collection has grown from the original 36 exhibits to almost 400 birds, fish, and animals. The museum now includes The Lair, an interactive area for children, as well as a garden, bird feeding station, and picnic area. The museum’s main focus is native Wyoming wildlife but also houses many birds and animals from around the world. The Werner Wildlife Museum is located at 405 E. 15th Street, just a short walk from the Casper College campus. Tours, group activities and special presentations are available by appointment.

We are open:

Monday-Friday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: Closed
