BuffaloBillMuseum

Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Wyoming


This large Cody landmark focuses on "Wild West Show" legend William Frederick Cody and is also home to many other museums. Paintings of the American West can be found in the Whitney Gallery of Western Art, a full-size teepee is on display at the Plains Indian Museum, and the Cody Firearms Museum houses an impressive collection of Winchesters. The unusual Draper Museum of Natural History's spiral design takes visitors down in elevation from alpine mountains, through forest and meadows, to plains and basins while illustrating the geology, wildlife, and peoples of the Yellowstone region.
