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.

Went to the Cheyenne Frontier Days for the first time and loved it all. The museum was very interesting with all of the history of the west. Take time to really go through and see all that is there and watch the movie. Very nicely done.

I'm a city slicker so parts of the museum was lost on me, but what I did like were the old videos about cowboys and cowgirls. There are many artifacts and relics from the Old West and a large hall with all sorts of carriages, wagons, and buggies. For those who are fans of the rodeo, this is a must-see.

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!
