New Building And American Indian Art Collection Transform The Brinton Museum
By MICAH SCHWEIZER • WYOMING PUBLIC RADIO
Here’s the story of how a museum nearly closed but instead reinvented itself with a brand new building and a major American Indian art collection. The new incarnation of the Brinton Museum in Big Horn opens to the public on Monday, June 15.
Driving up the dirt road that leads to the Brinton Memorial and the Brinton Museum, all that’s visible is the white ranch house peeking through the trees. It’s all rather subtle for a $15.8 million state of the art building. The new building isn’t even visible until one pulls into the parking lot. That’s because it’s buried in a hillside on a century-old 600-acre ranch at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains. CLICK HERE TO READ OR LISTEN TO THE FULL STORY ON WYOMINGPUBLICRADIO.ORG…
