The "Ivinson" name is part of the very history of the City of Laramie. The Museum offers guided tours of the Ivinson Mansion; this is the beautifully restored home and grounds built for Edward and Jane Ivinson. Truly a treasure!

The web site states that they open at 9 a.m. However, they do not open until the afternoon. Be sure to call ahead before you visit to confirm hours they are open. Guided tours are led by jr. high and sr. high students.
