5 stars for effort, friendliness, quirkiness. Small art museum, maybe 20-30 minutes of viewing; but check the rotating exhibitions because you might get lucky with Western artists/photographers who aren't widely known and who might have some unique interpretive artwork. Beware the usual Western art from the early to mid-20th century in which artists "represented" the Old West with no clue what that meant. Look for paintings/portraiture from the 1800s. The lobby off the Loggia had a fun exhibit of old-time women's fashion designed and presented by U. Wyoming fine arts students. Tappan rare book is worth a look; we got to turn the pages of wonderfully illustrated books published during 1500s-1600s. (Had some amusing mythology depicting 60-foot crocodiles and 9-foot tall "natives.") Pair this heritage center with the outstanding Geological Museum on campus and you've got yourself a memorable and educational break from the road. Oh, it's all free. Donations welcome.
