The Rockpile Museum is absolutely worth making time for in your visit to or through Gillette. Meticulously presented, the exhibits are visually engaging as well as informative.

Awesome look back on western history! My teenage girl loves this place. My grandfather homesteaded in Campbell County in 1920. I felt so connected to his life during our visit.

IS a very small place with very few things. I think they could do much better than that. The town needs a good museum.More
