*brilliant exhibits including sculptures *kept in clean spacious areas *very lifless atmosphere, could be made so much more informative with photographs, interactive features etc showing the exhibits in their true living glory-essential for younger visitors with limited knowledge of history *we used the trolley service and were left there for 90 minutes which proved to be at least 30 minutes...

This was another unplanned place to visit and we stumbled upon information about it while in Cheyenne. Was a nice way to spend the morning and the museum has some terrific displays. Would liked to have spent a little more time there to see and learn more about some of the exhibits, but for the time we spent, it was... More

We visited 10+ museums during our road trip and this was the only one we thought was overpriced. It was interesting but at $10 each it wasn't as good as the one in town which was free - be aware!

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...
