COVID Restrictions

caused events to be postponed or totally cancelled in 2020. We are holding good hopes that the following special events will happen in 2021.

Annual Meeting of Laramie Plains Museum Membership

on Sunday, February 21, 2021

did happen and was a nice, socially distanced event. We sincerely apologize to those who tried to attend virtually and couldn't get in.  Our Zoom meeting number, originally not requiring a password, locked out attendees at the last minute because of security following recent hacking of open meetings within our UW community. We were unaware.

We're very sorry and will make certain that future Zooms are available to all. We will also attach an emergency contact number in case there are problems.

Staying Connected With You!

With the Museum closed for tours during the COVID-19 pandemic, our curatorial staff and volunteers are working hard to help our patrons stay engaged with our museum. We asked some good friends of the mansion to star in a few videos highlighting influential people from Laramie's past. Check out the videos for interviews with our docents and volunteers about local history and Museum topics.
