Health Measures

The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum (JHHSM) is currently open for in-person visits. No reservations needed. We ask that visitors wear a face covering and maintain social distance inside the museum for the safety of all visitors and staff.

Research visits are welcome by online or phone appointment to research@jacksonholehistory.org or 307-733-2414.

The JHHSM’s priority is to ensure the health and safety of all our staff, volunteers, and visiting public. The following protocols were developed following Teton County, State of Wyoming, and CDC guidance, as well as looking to our peer museums across the country and the American Association for Museums. We are taking the following steps to ensure that museum visits run safely and pleasantly.
