Great time but not a fan of the prices

ITs an amazing experience and lots of fun! But at the years go by you almost need to take a loan out to be able to afford any of the food or stuff. Plus they keep removing and... read more

I was very impressed with this little museum. For a small museum, the quality of its exhibits was excellent. They have an excellent vintage "carriage" selection which really gives you the "flavor" of the Old West. HIgh intriguing. And I learned a lot about Frontier Days itself that I did not know, as well as getting acquainted with the awesome... More

This is one of the best museums and stores that you can visit in Wyoming. It's located at the Cheyenne Frontier Days HQ in Lions Park. Open year round with a great little gift shop. Take the kids, it will open their eyes to what folks went through to give us what we have today!

ITs an amazing experience and lots of fun! But at the years go by you almost need to take a loan out to be able to afford any of the food or stuff. Plus they keep removing and downgrading the carnival which sucks.

After seeing several other museums in the West (at Cody and Casper to name a couple), we were underwhelmed with this one. Every time we started getting interest in something, it ended. The horse-drawn vehicles were nicely displayed, but a little boring.

We stopped in here when we were in the area for a day. We enjoyed looking at the vehicles and reading all the displays. Lots of interesting information! Easy to spend 2 hours looking around! Don't forget to check out the statues outside and read about them too!

My husband and I called in and spent 2 1/2 hours visiting. Marsha at the front desk was really informative about the museum exhibits and also gave us plenty of knowledge for visiting the local area. The hospitality shown by all the staff was very welcoming. Enjoyed the DVD presentation, Must admit went away feeling a bit sad about the... More

This museum's focus is primarily on horse-drawn wheeled vehicles, mostly from the 1800s. These are well-displayed and quite interesting.

*brilliant exhibits including sculptures *kept in clean spacious areas *very lifless atmosphere, could be made so much more informative with photographs, interactive features etc showing the exhibits in their true living glory-essential for younger visitors with limited knowledge of history *we used the trolley service and were left there for 90 minutes which proved to be at least 30 minutes...

This was another unplanned place to visit and we stumbled upon information about it while in Cheyenne. Was a nice way to spend the morning and the museum has some terrific displays. Would liked to have spent a little more time there to see and learn more about some of the exhibits, but for the time we spent, it was... More

We visited 10+ museums during our road trip and this was the only one we thought was overpriced. It was interesting but at $10 each it wasn't as good as the one in town which was free - be aware!
