Wild Bill is buried on a hill overlooking Denver. Great view, good little shop, Bill is buried out the back with a big headstone with something along the lines of "Killer of Indians", which maybe they should of thought twice of. Anyway it is worth the drive, it doesn't cost anything and it is a nice place for the kids... More

The drive up to the Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum is beautiful - and the sights at the top make for great photos! The museum is small and cute, with lots of history about Buffalo Bill. There is a cute little cafe where you can get ice cream, coffee and other snacks. The museum is definitely worth visiting while in... More

Stopped in for a quick look, views were outstanding 5 star, they sell home made fudge which was yummy, gift shop was crammed, parking was hard and not too much to do there. But worth it for a quick drive up and overlook the valley!

If you are a huge Wild West fan like I am, then you will appreciate the history that is offered here. We toured the museum (which is fairly priced & very affordable). If you have kids - they will appreciate and enjoy this stop. I thought the museum presented Buffalo Bill's historical story in a decisive and methodical manner. The... More

Take the time to learn more about this great American. The museum and adjoining gift shop will be of interest to the entire family.

The site of Buffalo Bill's grave has amazing views of Golden, North and South Table Mountains and downtown Denver in the distance. Really worth a trip for the views alone but there is also a cool museum which is fun to check out too.
