1940s actifacts added to State Museum 125th Anniversary exhibit

A look at the 1940s is the latest installation of the Wyoming State Museum’s 125th Anniversary exhibit.

From the largest armed conflict in the world’s history to one of the worst blizzards in the history of our state, the 1940s certainly left its mark.

One of the objects featured this week is a Marine dress uniform. Approximately 33,000 Wyoming men and women served their country during WWII. The uniform belonged to Robert Drew of Cheyenne, who lost his life during the battle of Iwo Jima. The Wyoming State Museum is located at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Admission is free.
