“Santa’s Sleigh” & vintage toys on display at The Pioneer Museum for Holiday Season

Children have always loved toys and anxiously awaited Santa’s annual visit. A new Christmas display at the Pioneer Museum in Lander features an antique sleigh full of vintage toys, perfect for the holiday season.

Rather than I-phones, mountain bikes, and playstations, kids in Lander’s early days were thrilled to get wooden tricycles, porcelain dolls and pull toys.

On display will be dolls, cast iron toys, toy trains. antique pull toys, skates, and many other vintage children’s toys. In addition, the entire museum will be decorated for Christmas.

The museum is still featuring the Ralston paintings of the life of Chief Washakie. According to Museum Visitor Services Coordinator Randy Wise, the museum is a great place to visit on a snowy day, or to bring guests who are in town for the holidays.

Coming up at the museum is the Lander Chamber’s Business After Hours December 17.

The Pioneer Museum’s winter hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
