The Nelson Museum was a brainchild of its founder Robert L. Nelson, a dedicated person who believes in the preservation of and conservation of the world?s wildlife. He started his hobby of being a big game hunter since he was 14 years old. He has since hunted on every continent including nine times in Africa.

The idea to organized and build the museum was born during his hunting expeditions to many continents. With exhibits about the different wildlife around the world, Nelson hopes to bring some of the most exotic animals to Wyoming. The museum is housed in an old building that was originally constructed to be women?s fine clothing and fur store. After completing renovations and remodeling, the museum is now fully handicapped accessible and welcomes thousands of visitors yearly.

The museum also supports a charitable arm, known as the Dream Catcher Fund. It was established in 2003 provide valuable emergency assistance to people in need. It is open following a different set of time schedule on Mondays to Fridays all year round.
