Very disappointed that they didn't have more historic memorabilia of the Frontier Days. One old trophy saddle of Clayton Danks, a few old silver cups that looked like they had been through a fire. some photos and 50+ wagons, buggies, carts, coaches etc in various stages of deterioration . Thought perhaps that the gift shop might have a nice book... More

Excellent Old West history! We enjoyed looking and reading of all the Old West. Each one in our group wanted to go back again.

I thought this was a tad bit pricey, but not too bad. In the inside you will see a lot of old west memorabilia, mostly focusing on things related to Cheyenne's Frontier Days celebration. It is a treasure trove if you are interested in old carriages, wagons, stages, etc. Minga -- never saw so many! To be perfectly honest, if... More

I had heard about the Frontier Days but didn't know much about them. The museum is on the CFD grounds, not far from the main grandstand. It isn't a large museum but it was full of fun facts and treasures from throughout the history of CFD. I spent about an hour wandering the museum and grounds. I'm glad I made... More

This is an interesting, fun place to visit, especially on a cold day. There are authentic displays, lots of wagons & antique 4-wheeled modes of transportation, along with a free movie featuring old time cowgirls & cowboys showing off their skills. There's the Hole in the Wall Room, set-up for children, where they can dress-up in cowboy & cowgirl style,... More

This small museum holds so much western history,you can spend hours and hours and want to return for more. All of the historic wagons and in such excellent condition,just touch amd feel where the wheels turned and what awful trails and weather they endured is just so great of a feeling! This museum is a " must see" place for... More
