Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum

Casper, WY
United States

The Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum preserves and shares the legacy and impact of Wyoming's military veterans. We explore the past through the lens of personal experiences both in and out of uniform. For many veterans, service continues beyond their time in uniform. The WVMM also preserves Wyoming's military history, including the service and legacy of the Casper Army Air Base. The base trained bomber crews during the Second World War and later hosted the Wyoming Air National Guard during the early years of the Cold War.
