The University of Wyoming Geological Museum hours of operation are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.; closed Sundays. Admission to the museum is free.

The museum is located in Laramie. Laramie is located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Highway 287, just 45 miles west of Cheyenne.

The UW campus is centrally located within Laramie, bounded by Lewis St. on the north, Ivinson St. on the south, and 9th St. on the west. 15th St. bisects the campus.

The UW Geological Museum is located on the northwest campus near the corner of 9th and Lewis, along with the S.H. Knight Geology and attached Earth Sciences Buildings, the Wyoming Geological Survey, and the new Berry Center for Biodiversity. Due to construction on campus, Lewis St. is closed between 9th and 11th streets.

Due to campus construction projects, parking is limited on the northwest part of campus. More information is available at

Please note that access to the rear of the museum by vehicle is for either handicapped parking or drop-offs only. There is not enough space for either schoolbuses or RVs.

You can find campus maps and information here.

The museum can be reached on foot from all directions across campus. Consult the campus map (link above) to determine the best route, and visit the Anthropology Museum and the Berry Biodiversity Center while you are here!
