Welcome to the Wyoming Frontier Prison!

We are now in our Winter Season! We offer tours Monday - Thursday at 10:30 am and again at 1:30 pm (We are closed for all Winter Holidays). Tour times are subject to change without notice. The outside temperature must be above 0° at time of tour in order for us to give a tour. If you are not fully vaccinated, we request that you wear a cloth face covering that covers from nose to chin while you are visiting our historic site. Dress warmly...it is colder inside than it is outside!

"Rent" a cell in Historic Cell Block A

“Rent” a cell in Historic Cell Block A for a week for only $10!

This fundraiser kept us afloat in 2019 & 2020 and we are grateful!  We have discovered that people think it is fun to “rent” a cell and they appreciate a way to assist the Wyoming Frontier Prison, so we will continue with this program.

If you don’t want to use your real name, you can rent your cell under your alias. We will post a picture of your cell on our Face Book page so you can share it with your friends. Unfortunately, you will not be able to visit your cell.

Thank you for your continued support!
