The Ames Monument is located about 20 miles east of Laramie, Wyo. and 29 miles west of Cheyenne. From I-80, take Exit 329 and follow the signs. Some travel on a gravel road is required. The site is open year-round as weather permits and is best viewed during daylight hours, although the grounds are open 24 hours daily. There is no admission fee, and while the site is handicapped accessible, there are no facilities.
