The Museum Complex consists of two full floors of exhibits in the main Museum building, and five additional structures on the Museum grounds.

The mission of the Hot Springs County Museum and Cultural Center is to serve as an educational resource for teaching and researching the history of Hot Springs County; to collect, preserve and exhibit artifacts that tell and interpret the stories of the region's people; and to provide cultural activities that enrich the experiences of community and visitors.

The present Hot Springs County Museum is the outgrowth of the Hot Springs County Pioneer Association Museum, which first opened its doors on July 4, 1941. Founded to preserve the history of the region's settlers, the Museum has gathered a large collection of artifacts used in everyday life in Wyoming, with the majority of items dating from the 1880s through the 1930s.

The Cultural Center Auditorium is available for exhibitions, meetings, theatrical productions, art shows, etc. The cultural center auditorium can seat 80-90 people, has a stage, dressing rooms and sound system. Folding chairs, tables and limited kitchen facilities are also available. To reserve the auditorium or other museum facilities, phone the Hot Springs County Museum and Cultural Center at (307) 864-5183 or email info@hschistory.org.
