The Werner Wildlife Museum is operated by Casper College and is located near the campus. The building was constructed in 1964 by Herman Werner, who wanted a place to house his trophy collection. He donated the building and collection to Casper College in 1970. The museum focuses primarily on Wyoming wildlife but also has animals from around the world. The collection grew from 36 specimens to almost 400. The museum serves as a resource center and is available to use as a multi-purpose classroom for various education programs. Guided tours are available by appointment.
