Very good place to visit! Its so nice to be there and watch the movie that tells the history of the construtions. Its near the Cody town. And you can go inside the dam, through the elevator. The view from the top is impressive! I recomend it!!

Very interesting and historical place. Love the drive up to it from Cody. People were all friendly and helpful with lots of knowledge of the area and the history. Will be back to visit again.

Worth the stop. The Dam offers a short golf cart ride to the front entrance, although when we went it was pretty dead. Small, but a nice educational visitor center on local animals and the different equipment used in building the Dam. May be windy at times, so bring a coat.

The Buffalo Bill Dam is just a few minutes outside of Cody. It is a great place to stop and take pictures.

Certainly take the 30 minutes to visit the Dam and museum. Easy short walk or golf cart ride from parking lot to dam. Beautiful scenery. Spectacular views of lake and from the top of the dam. The history and visitor center is small but very informative. You will not regret stopping and it is easy to get to.

Wow didn't know this dam existed. We parked the car and walked to the Dam's museum. It was a glorious day and view of the dam was amazing. We sat in the visitor's center and watch movies about the dam which was very interesting. Who knew!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The mountains were amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would definitely return to this attraction.

Nice visitor center including a good movie about building the dam. Dam and visitor center in dramatic location. Can get a quick look in less than an hour or can spend more time, I think they have an audio tour.
