The Nici Self Historical Museum is located at 2734 Highway 130 in Centennial, Wyoming, at the base of the Snowy Range Mountains. Operated by the Centennial Valley Historical Association and a corps of dedicated volunteers, it was organized in the early 1970s as part of a community effort to be recognized as a Bicentennial community. Berniece “Nici” Self was one of the founding members, and the museum is named in her honor.
Exhibits celebrate the mining, ranching, and railroading history of the area. Several buildings from around the area have been moved to the grounds and are open to visitors.
We’re open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Thursday through Monday, noon to 4 PM. In September, we’re open Saturday and Sunday, noon to 4 PM. Admission is always free, but donations are gratefully accepted. If you’d like to arrange a visit outside of normal hours, please contact us.
