The Long Road to Longmire

There’s a new sheriff in town ….

This temporary exhibit features the backstory of how the immensely successful Longmire television show was created from the award-winning book series by local author, Craig Johnson.

Learn more about Craig, the people and places that inspired roles in his books, and how real life in Johnson County compares to Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life in Absaroka County.


The annual Longmire Days event is scheduled for September 2 – 5, 2021.  Visit the official Longmire Days page to learn more about the festivities.  Click here to watch a Q&A interview with Craig Johnson conducted at the museum during 2020’s virtual Longmire Days.
