Their partnership allows us to bring the Museum out into classrooms and our community.

The Nature Conservancy of Wyoming

The Greater Yellowstone Botanical Tour (GYBT) on the Museum’s Sculpture Trail is a partnership of the Museum, The Nature Conservancy of Wyoming, and Teton Botanical Garden, made possible by Teton Conservation District. The GYBT is a powerful educational tool to engage visitors in nature and in place. It allows the Museum to provide visitors with a deeper understanding of regional ecosystems, through exploration, education, and art.

Sage Living

In the winter months, the Museum welcomes residents from Sage Living on Mondays when the Museum is closed to the public. This allows seniors who may not be able to come to the Museum otherwise or who may be immunocompromised to enjoy the Museum in safety. Art has the power to inspire and heal, and our programs and events team is thrilled to offer this to our local senior living community.
