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 is one the largest, if not the largest collection of horse drawn vehicles in the US. In addition, the museum highlights the history of the more than 100 year old Cheyenne Frontier days rodeo. If you like western art and history, this is a "must see."

If rodeo and cowboy history are your thing, this is the museum for you. Carriages from the early 1900s. Film concerning The Daddy Of Them All -- Cheyenne Frontier Days and much more. Best visited when CFD is not going on (last full week in July) to avoid very large crowds.

You can read about the museum in the other reviews but the Frontier Days is the time to go. It is a brilliant rodeo (better than most by far) with national stars and exceptional care taken over the animals. The course is more challenging than most to give the livestock more of a chance and it means its even more... More

3rd largest collection of buggies, surreys, and all types of horse drawn carriages. Incredible pieces that we are told are used in the Frontier Days parades each year. Very impressive and beautifully cared for

I did not expect to like this as much as I did. This is a charming museum. It has some beautiful artwork, an impressive carriage display and a lot of interesting information about the history of Cheyenne. There is also a lot of information about the Frontier Days Rodeo. Plan on about an hour to an hour and a half.... More
