Hands On History in Dubois
Central Wyoming College and The National Museum of Military Vehicles in Dubois are offering three Hands-On History programs to allow their visitors to touch and learn about history before it is put under glass for displays.
CWC Outreach Coordinator Jen Wright is excited to offer this opportunity to all.
“This is a ‘VIP Preview’ opportunity to encounter items before they go on exhibit. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors for this unique and fun experience.” ”
