The Merci Train: Gifts from the People of FranceOn view thru February 1, 2014
This small traveling exhibit explores a little-known facet of 20th century history. In 1949, France sent fifty gift-filled railroad cars to the U.S. to express their gratitude for American help rebuilding their country after World War II. The contents of the boxcar given to the state of Wyoming is the focus of this exhibit.
EXHIBIT FROM MUSEUM'S COLLECTION
Our new temporary exhibit, Cabinet of Curiosities, draws on the talents of Casper College Museum Studies students and explores Fort Caspar Museum’s own eclectic collection.
This display will feature little-seen objects from deep in collection storage, selected and researched by the students. Visitors will also learn about the history of museums in general and of Fort Caspar Museum in particular.
There will be an opening reception held on Saturday, November 23rd from 2:00 to 4:00pm. Please join us for refreshments, kids crafts, and especially to see the new exhibit and meet the students who worked on it. All are welcome to attend, and admission to the Museum will be free during this event.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the Front Desk and with School Tours.
