If you're heading to Denver be sure to include this attraction in your travel plans. A picturesque drive up the mountain will take you to this unique Old West museum and specutalar overlook with beautiful views of Denver and Golden. There is also an adjacent gift shop and snack bar. A short walk will lead you to Buffalo Bill's grave.... More

I was there before the museum opened, but as a history buff, seeing Buffalo Bill's grave was pretty cool. The scenery from this mountain top is spectacular!

The drive up to the museum and grave was a worth it alone. Museum was filled with interesting Buffalo Bill stuff. Have a root beer float on the deck of the gift shop and take in the fresh mountain air and scenery!

We went there on a Monday so the museum was closed, but we did walk up to the grave site and we also visited the gift shop. The prices were reasonable.

Knock out two birds with one stone!! Head west on 19th street from Golden and drive up Lariat Loop, a scenic by way. Full of impressive views and nice switch back turns!!!

It was a saturday and it is worth mentioning that one must be very careful when driving to the top of the Mount because you might find... More

Chocked Full of memorabilia and artifacts. I learned a lot about the teal West and had a chance to pay respects to the namesake at his final resting place.

My wife and I visited here on a recent business trip to the area. When we arrived it had been snowing with below zero temperatures. Fortunately, within a couple days the weather improved and we were able to make the steep ascent to the top of Mount Lookout to enjoy this wonderful museum. The road had been cleared of snow...
