This is a must-see for the views and its singular place in history. It is easy to get to. From the parking lot you look DOWN at Golden and North and South Table Mountains. The museum is small-medium sized but inexpensive ($5/$4-seniors). There was only ONE William F. Cody and no one quite like him. The gravesite is nice and... More

Didn't leave ourselves enough time to properly explore it, but good enough for me to want to go back. The views are glorious. I can just imagine what it would look like with snow on the peaks. Buffalo Bill was a man who lived his life to the fullest.

It is nothing special, but if you are into western history and lore, it is a fun place to visit. It has a nice view of the Denver area and I like western history and enjoyed reading about his life. It was also nice to visit his grave.

We were able to squeeze this in before we had to hit the airport. It was supposed to open at 8am, but was closed when we arrived. Someone finally showed up around 8:15. Nothing was open, so we checked out the views of the mountains, Golden and Denver (far out). We walked to the gravesite. Just a neat and free... More

Typical small museum outlining Buffalo Bill's life. Interesting history. The museum consists of an exhibit including a brief film, gift and snack shop, and the actual gravesite. The best part is the scenic views. The drive to the top of Lookout Mountain is beautiful and the views from the top are amazing.

At one time this had to be one of the most beautiful views in the city. Now as you look out from Buffalo Bills grave you see radio towers and other towers and wires. You can definitely see the Coors beer plant from the top. Gift shop is loaded with all kinds of cheap memorabilia. Lots of native American made... More

Buffalo Bill was a man way ahead of his time. Going to the museum allows you to get a better appreciation for the man. Inspiring. And the view from here is beyond belief.

The drive to the top of Lookout Mountain to visit Buffalo Bill's museum and grave is fantastic if you want a great view of Golden! You can even see downtown Denver off in the distance! We did the drive in the evening and unfortunately the museum was closed (closes at 5 pm in the summertime) but we did get to... More

The drive up the mountain offers spectacular views and lovely wildflowers. I found the museum very interesting and detailed. I learned Buffalo Bill was more than a showman. He was one of the first outspoken advocates for Native Americans and referred to Indians as "Americans" who deserved equal rights and fair treatment.

The drive up Lookout Mountain was beautiful and the museum is a nice little place, reasonably priced and interesting. Worth a drive to see the views and learn about Buffalo Bill Cody, and to see his resting place.
