About the Carbon County Museum
The Carbon County Museum is accepting visitors. To keep our visitors and staff COVID safe we are requiring visitors to wear masks or face coverings over mouth and nose. For groups larger than 10 planning to visit the museum please inform us of your plans at least 72 hours in advance so we can make special arrangements for you.
The Carbon County Museum preserves and interprets the rich heritage of Carbon County and the diversity of its communities to inspire an appreciation of the past, and to spark curiosity about the future.
The museum collection includes over 30,000 artifacts and archive items. Admission is free and open year round.
Autographed Books by C.J. Box
The Carbon County Museum sells copies of C.J. Box's books, all autographed by the author for sale. The proceeds of these sales go toward refurbishing and adaptive reuse of the historic Hugus-Ferguson Building on Cedar Street, Rawlins, which will eventually be the new home of The Heritage and Cultural Center of Carbon County.
Please see our Ebay page to purchase signed books either individually or as an entire set.
