Discover the rich cultural heritage of southwestern Wyoming at the Sweetwater County Historical Museum. Established in 1967 to preserve the history of Sweetwater County, the museum galleries feature both permanent and temporary exhibitions from Native Americans to early settlers to mining to outlaw history. The Museum is housed in the old Green River Post Office building.

The first federal building in the city, the Post Office was built in 1931 under the Elliot Act, a pre-New Deal economic recovery plan. As was common at the time, the building is of Neo-classical design and is one of three buildings in Green River on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum also maintains exhibits at several off-site locations in Sweetwater County, including the airport, hospital, and other public facilities.
