• Museum Closed for Spring

Welcome to Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum

A message from the JHHSM about our early spring closure

The health, safety and well-being of our guests, members, staff, and larger community is our highest priority at the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum.

With that in mind, the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum will initiate our off-season closure early at our two locations 225 North Cache, as well as at 105 Glenwood, which is already closed for the winter season. Our Beers and Banter events will also be postponed.

Despite the Museum being closed, serving our community is still at the heart of what we do. Stay tuned for more updates and community resources posted, or possibly streamed, via this site and social media. Our year-round staff will continue working remotely. Please reach out to us with any questions, info@jacksonholehistory.org, or research needs, nora@jacksonholehistory.org.

Our Museum task force will be closely following the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and our Teton County Health Department and St. John’s Health recommendations, to assess our regular re-opening date in mid-May for everyone’s safety.

We also recognize the incredible legacy of resilience and hard work – both past and present – in Jackson Hole and take heart in the services provided by so many in our community.

Thank you for your understanding. We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the JHHSM soon!

Welcome to the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum

Founded in 1958 by avocational archaeologist and western history enthusiast Slim Lawrence, Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum plays a critical role in the Jackson Hole community and Greater Yellowstone.

In addition to collecting, preserving and exploring the past, the museum supports educational programs and research that focuses on archaeology and the history of the Native American presence in the Intermountain West. The fur trade, homestead, ranching and dude ranch eras, development of tourism, mountaineering, skiing and other outdoor recreation, are also part of our mission, as well as the importance of the region’s role in the history of the country’s national and international conservation movements.
