VIDEO: Riverton Museum shows off their Hercules Blasting Machine

If you’re looking for a quick 2 1/2 minute distraction, or are doing the virtual classroom thing with your kiddos, check out this piece of history the Riverton Museum has inside.

Manager Zach Larsen shows off the machine and teaches us some of its history, as well as how it was used in Fremont County.


The Fremont County Museum system is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but you can expect more fun videos and content from them soon. Follow the Riverton Museum on Facebook here.
