Great stop for the family. The museum has a small fee to go through. The actual grave is a short walk behind the museum and gift shop. There is a cafe where you can grab a bite to eat....the gift shop had lots of items for kids that d isn't cost an arm and leg. Great views of the mountains... More

Great views at the top and interesting museum. It is great to see some of the items they have preserved. They also have some videos running in the Museum that really show the historical relevance. Interesting stuff. Also you should stop 1/3 of the way down because the have guys coming off the mountain with parachutes and will glide for... More

I had always heard about Buffalo Bill but knew nothing beyond recognizing the name. The museum provided an excellent historical overview of Buffalo Bill's life and the Wild West Show. My party enjoyed our visit to the museum. If you're in the area, I would recommend a visit to this attraction.

If you are into the whole Annie Oakley, Wild West thing you will enjoy this. It's very interesting and well done and gives a real sense of what it was like to live in the West when it was still the frontier. There is a museum, gift shop ( of course) as well as a small resturant and snack bar.....a... More

The museum was reasonably priced and had lots of great displays. Who knew Buffalo Bill Cody was such an icon? Highly recommend watching the video that depicts his life. The walk to his grave is not far from the museum and is handicap accessible.

We thoroughly enjoy our visit to this windy and wonderful spot where Buffalo Bill is buried with his wife. The museum tour was wonderful (there is a small fee for entrance). It is a short walk from the parking area to where he is actually buried, overlooking the grand view into the Denver area. Follow the signs and ignore a... More

The Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum sits atop Lookout Mountain, which affords it a nice view of Denver and the surrounding area. The museum itself is actually fairly detailed and well done. I didn't know very much about Buffalo Bill, but I learned quite a bit. The exhibits were detailed, and there is a short film. Although the museum is... More

You need to drive a road that is really a challenge but not that hard. A nice view from the top. We got to watch Annie Oakley and her shooting. A lot going on in the Museum to show you how Buffalo Bill lived his life.

The drive up to the site was nice but we choose not to pay to go into the museum. Seemed small for the price. The General store had a lot of cool things in it
