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!

Frontier Days artifacts and history nicely displayed and organized. Not sure I'd go out of my way to visit, but the Trolley Tour (recommended) stopped here for 20 minutes.

Wonderful self guided tour of the Frontier days to present. Fine art work in various forms. Changing displays of museum quality. Helpful and friendly guides. It is especially great when combined with the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. If attending Rodeo, book early for lodging or campgrounds.
