Wyoming had no state building; its appropriation of 25,000 dollars was devoted entirely to exhibits in the Palaces of Mines and Metallurgy and Agriculture. In the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy, attention was immediately attracted to the State's exhibit of oils. Lumps of bituminous coal, weighing ten tons; of soda, weighing 5,000 pounds from the natural soda lakes of Albany county, were to be seen.

Wyoming exhibitors received 125 awards in the Palaces of Mines
and Agriculture,

Wyoming was one of the  few states to have its exhibit practically complete upon the opening day and thus was dedicated on  April, 30, 1904, though Wyoming Day  was  celebrated on July 11th with a  military  parade and other  ceremonies, finishing  with a  reception  at  the  Innside  Inn.

One person in every fifty residents that lived in Wyoming saw the World's Fair.

The commission printed and distributed over 500,000 pamphlets to visitors on information about the resources of Wyoming.
