Go thru each part of the museum & take you time. If you have any questions, there is always someone to ask if you have questions. It is a great museum. 5 in 1 & part of the Smithsonian as well

Loved this one! The special Raptor visit at 1:00 was wonderful. Getting to see the birds and learn how they live was very interesting. There are a lot of interactive displays in this portion of the museum, great for kids!

Nice exhibit. The example animals looked alive! What all natural museums should look like! Would like to visit again!

The lighting! The sounds! The presentation! This is an incredible museum. We could have spent the day here! It was our favorite! The problem with all 5 museums is that there is just to much to see! Plan on 2 days for this place! It deserves it!

A must to see in Cody in the museum center. We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful exhibit. Easy to get to but make sure you have a solid hour to spend there.

Great history collection for those of us who have been out of school for way more years than we would like to say. It was great to review some of the information we were taught in school. I had a great time reminiscing.

Very glad we made time for this museum during our visit to the Buffalo Bill Centre. The fee to get in to the Centre includes all 5 museums (Plains Indians, Buffalo Bill, Firearms, Art and this one). The exhibits are really well done and interactive. Very few are behind glass, as you would see in many other museums, but are... More

Museums of natural history are not my favorite type of museum, but I love the multi-story layout and level of information here. They did a great job, as they did in all the museums in this center.

Lots to see at this museum. They do an excellent job of demonstrating the surrounding flora and fauna. Everything a natural history museum should be. A definite to-do in Cody.
