Meeteetse Museum

We visited a wonderful museum in Meeteetse Wyoming. They had on display mostly what you would expect to see in a rural western town’s museum. There were old farm and ranch equipment, forestry tools and historic firearms.

They had some of the exhibits
organized into rooms, like the
parlor and the kitchen.

They had old furniture and a collection of North American wild sheep.

But this I did not expect to see. In the back of the
place, across from the wild sheep stood an armless
mannequin wearing a security guard shirt.
No pants, just the shirt. Security in Meeteetse must not require all that much, just a dummy with a shirt!
