Carbon County Museum envisions diverse but relevant experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds to learn about themselves and their world through the history of Carbon County. The museum collects, conserves, interprets and disseminates regional history to inspire Carbon County cultural entities and all learners—today and tomorrow.

Our multisensory programs include:
