"Who's Your Candidate?   Political Buttons, Pins, & Souvenirs of the 20th Century"

November 27, 2019 to November 7, 2020

Gathered from Fort Caspar Museum's own collection as well as from local private collections, this exhibit features a variety of buttons, merchandise, and memorabilia from political campaigns.  The items all date from the 20th century and are a sampling of national, statewide, and local elections.  The exhibit also features souvenirs from political conventions as well as a selection of political collectibles.

"More Pronghorn Than People"

July 29 to October 10, 2020

The American Heritage Center’s traveling exhibit “More Pronghorn Than People” will be on from July 29 through October 10, 2020. The exhibit features black-and-white photographs accompanied by information panels that shed light on this unique and—in Wyoming—ubiquitous animal.

Known colloquially (and incorrectly) as “antelope,” the story of the pronghorn in Wyoming is one of abundance.  Few travelers in the state will return home without seeing herds of pronghorn along the highways.  Until fairly recently--and when this exhibit was organized--there were more pronghorn in Wyoming than there were human residents.
