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.
