The guy who runs this place was very friendly and obviously knew what he was talking about. He could explain any of the stories behind the guns to you. The history behind these guns was very cool to discover. He runs simply off of donations and I would recommend it to anyone to check out!

We visited the Cody Dug Up Gun Museum. It was nice to visit, with many guns, alot of them were damaged as it says "Dug Up". Nice to see so many firearms from years gone past. Great History to see.

This is a small museum but definitely worth a stop. The owner is very knowledgeable about the guns displayed and is a wealth of information.

This is a smaller private collection of firearms that have been found or "dug up". Thus the name. What a collection! I was very impressed. When in Cody, this is a must see. I know I will go back. Located conveniently in the downtown area across from the Irma hotel. What makes this impressive to me is to think that... More

I went with my husband to visit this museum because he enjoys this type of attraction so much! And, he also wanted to see it so he could tell our son-in-laws gun enthusiasts about it--knew they would enjoy! However, I think I enjoyed it as much as he did. It is a small museum but the owner has it arranged... More

On a recent driving trip we stopped in Cody to visit the town. We saw and heard of their fine work in excavating old west relics and their displays. Upon our visit we were greeted with smiling faces and great stories of the old west. This cannot be missed. It is an example of local history displayed with love and... More

This museum is small but mighty. It has been arranged by the owner so well and efficiently that you have no trouble finding your way. Each item (gun, bullet, holster, etc.) has been well documented and there is a story next to each one. And the walls are full of interesting posters and historical data as well. All of this... More

I could go into a museum featuring firearms and be totally bored within minutes, but this place is totally different. Call it rusty gold, treasure, dug up delights, whatever you wish, but what you are going to get is a chronological history of guns told in a wonderful way. Each display case is labelled with a "group" of guns. Each... More
