EXHIBIT FROM MUSEUM'S COLLECTION
Cabinet of Curiosities draws on the talents of Casper College Museum Studies students and explores Fort Caspar Museum’s own eclectic collection. This display features little-seen objects from deep in collection storage, selected and researched by the college students and museum staff. Visitors will also learn about the history of museums in general and of Fort Caspar Museum in particular.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the Front Desk and with School Tours.
Do you enjoy working with children?
You can help us by being a docent with School Tours. A docent is a volunteer who provides interactive learning experiences through tours, lectures, and hands-on activities. Docents will give one tour (about 90 minutes) a week during the spring session, fall session, or both.
