Holiday Open House 2021

Saturday, December 11, 3:00-6:00

Sunday, December 12, 1:00-4:00

The Open House is our gift to the community, so come tour the beautifully decorated Mansion at no cost! Since there are always many people wanting to view the exhibits and the holiday displays, masks are required this year. Come to the front porch of the Mansion to begin the tour. Hosts will be at each room and entrance so can give you a complimentary mask if you need it, as well as help with information.

Alice Freeman will be playing her harp and That One Trio will be caroling on Saturday!


This year, there will not be cookies and hot cider in the Alice Hardie Stevens Center because of COVID protocols, but Laramie Woman's Club will have their FABULOUS CHRISTMAS ITEMS at amazing prices.

KIRBY HORNBECK will have his stunning gallery photographs here--perfect for Christmas giving! And new vendor, SHELLY NEWMAN will be here with her terrific holiday wreaths. LPM Board director, Debi Ockers just may be handing out a fun

take-home treat to everyone stopping

into the Center.

Staying Connected With You!

With the Museum closed for tours during the COVID-19 pandemic, our curatorial staff and volunteers worked 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 other museum topics.
