About Us

Art Museum


The University of Wyoming Art Museum is located in the dramatic Centennial Complex on the university campus in Laramie, Wyoming. The Centennial Complex, which also houses the American Heritage Center, was designed by internationally acclaimed architect Antoine Predock and is a public facility with spacious free parking for visitors. Supported by public and private funds, the University of Wyoming Art Museum was created to serve the people of Wyoming and those who visit the state.


Museum exhibitions offer something for everyone and are displayed in an exciting gallery environment. Special programs, lectures, openings, workshops, classes and tours are held on a regular basis. The University of Wyoming Art Museum offers a year-round source of education and entertainment for the entire family.



The University of Wyoming Art Museum has been accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) since 1976. This accreditation recognizes the Museum's commitment to excellence, high professional standards and continued institutional improvements. Just 5 percent of all museums in the U.S. earn AAM accreditation.
