come for the statutes outside

We frankly came for the photo op with the two statues outside the Museum. Sadly the rodeo had nothing going on until July so we just relaxed in the park next door.

This is a place to be at last full week of July. Lots of fun stuff to do. Parades, Ft. Warren, Chilli Cook Off. Rodeo galore. You just have to check it out.

This museum is jam backed with items from the area. Also, the lady at the front desk was such a joy. She loves her job, and she is very enthusiastic about what she does.

We only had an hour to spare to see this museum due to a pressing need to be elsewhere. Despite this lack of time we thoroughly enjoyed viewing the presentation and the large number of restored wagons. Left wishing we had had more time to view all the exhibits. Well worth seeing if you are interested in wild west history

I grew up hearing about Cheyenne Frontier Days, it did not disappoint. Had lots of Western styles of transportation besides memorabilia about Frontier Days. Videos of past rodeos and western art. Very classy displays.

Excellent western displays with a neat area in the back for with kids activities. The kids can really keep busy in the kids room. Great display of old wagons that are very interesting to look at, well maintained, and the staff will answer questions.

Visited here with the family while in Cheyenne. The museum is situated in the north of the city opposite a park and is a very drivable five minutes from main street. The museum really focuses on the city's history of rodeo and how it all came about. It also looks at the town's relationship with the native american indians and... More

I don't think that the family would have been interested in a rodeo until we stopped at this museum. Fair prices admission, nice displays and some interactive displays. We enjoyed our visit!
