The Museum is responsible for receiving and preserving artifacts that provide an understanding of the history and culture of Cheyenne Frontier Days. When objects are brought in, we research and inspect the items for relevance to our Mission and Vision Statement. We prepare necessary documentation for the object; its history and nature. The Museum uses this information and these objects in exhibitions and research.
In maintaining objects over their Museum lifetime, proper means of care are applied. In telling stories with these items, these standards allow the Museum to build and foster public trust in the well-being of our collections. We do this so that the heritage of our community can be shared and engaged for many years to come.
