In-Service Program

The Johnson County School District often has in-service days during which students do not have school. Museum Fun at the Library is an opportunity for students to come to the museum for educational and fun-filled activities during those days.  These events are held at the Johnson County Library, at 171 N. Adams Avenue.

*Due to the construction/re-model of the Johnson County Library, the 2016 Museum Fun at the Library programs may be held elsewhere.  Please contact museum educator Jennifer Romanoski for details, at educator@jimgatchell.com or 307-684-9331

  • Fun at Museum: NA Crafts

    Native American Crafts

    The kids learned about local Native American tribes such as the Shoshone, Crow, Arapaho, and the Cheyenne. We made tribal flags and learned what each symbol represented, made tipis, illustrated our own winter counts, and read and illustrated Native American myths.

  • Fun at the Museum Recycled Crafts

    Here we made napkin beads with paper towel rolls and leftover dried beans; frisbees from paper plates; rain sticks from aluminum foil, paper towel rolls, and dried rice.

  • Fun at Museum-BLM

    Participants learned about “Leave no Trace”, how to use GPS units, and enjoyed being outdoors while finding waypoints on their GPS units.
