Stan Klassen Research Center

Located at the Museum on 225 N. Cache. 


The Stan Klassen Research Center is open to the public Monday – Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm by appointment only. Please call (307) 733-2414 or email to make an appointment or to request information. Nora, our Research & Collections Coordinator, is happy to help!

While it is free to use our research center, please see our Fee Schedule for the cost of copies, publication of materials, and research assistance.

School and History Day Students:

Please note that all students are expected to make their own research arrangements. We are happy to assist but we do not respond to research requests from students’ parents; JHHSM believes strongly in our mission of education and this includes assisting learners of all ages in finding out how to use primary resources and conduct their own research.


Researchers, students or people who just want to know something about Jackson Hole, can visit our Research Library to search over 16,000 images, 10,000 documents, 400 oral histories, an extensive Western history magazine collection, local newspaper microfilm and hundreds of books, films and videos about the West and our region. The Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum houses and maintains a cooperating collection of the Teton County Library. The collection is non-circulating, but available for public use at the museum.
