The displays of historical artifacts residing in Western Wyoming Community College may be old news to some Sweetwater County residents.
The community college residing in Rock Springs is in fact home to some incredible history, which may be worth a visit.
WWCC’s Natural History Museum collection was recently featured on the “Only In Wyoming” website as being “home to some unexpected treasures.”
Within the museum, you can view nearly complete remains of a prehistoric person, as well as fossils, life-sized dinosaurs, the Weidner Wildlife Museum with 125 mounted exhibits of wildlife from all over the world, and more.

“Community colleges don’t typically have the notoriety that universities do, but there’s one institution of higher learning in the little town of Rock Springs, Wyoming that deserves more press than it gets.
The Western Wyoming Community College is where you’ll find the Natural History Museum. It’s a treasure-trove of artifacts that are as surprising as they are valuable.
With exhibits spread out across the campus, you’ll get a tour of the grounds while you take in the engrossing displays.
The museum’s collection includes a handful of concrete replicas of maoi, more commonly known as Easter Island statues. You can see several scattered around the walking track and back lawn of the campus.”
