The museum is affordable and should not be missed while you're attending the Cheyenne Frontier Days (why can't we review that??? It is so awesome!). The museum has some hands-on exhibits which is nice and so much rodeo history. They also have quite a display of wagons and buggies. They were also having an art exhibit - breathtaking art work...

Very small local museum. You can see it in 15 minutes. On display were the hand-tooled saddles that would be presented to the cowboys who win the big rodeo events. Also a local art show. There are $1 off coupons if you take the "Behind the chutes" tour. We did the museum first and found out about the discount coupons... More

I visited during the off season and truly enjoyed the videos, interactive exhibits and learning about the many roles of a rodeo. The wagon display is truly breathtaking and informational. Worth the visit, especially during Frontier Days!

This museum is very nice modern facility even though the rodeo itself is somewhat historic. I learned a lot about the world famous rodeo by taking a stroll through this place. I recommend it!

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
