Very informative displays on different levels of this part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. We walked around twice, because we were afraid we missed something. Nice setup, good information!

So informative on the Yellowstone Eco System. Great museum for all ages! Kids love it because there are so many hands on exhibits to explore and learn. It is very easy to tour and move through the various interesting displays with no waiting in lines. Anyone intending to visit Yellowstone would benefit by taking the time to tour this museum...

This is just one of the five museums in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, and you can enter through the main museum or through a smaller entrance next to the parking lot, which will put you on the ground floor. It's great for kids - they can pick up a little passport and stamp impressions onto it at... More

We spent time in this museum on each of the 2 tours that we took and also spent more time there on our own. It showcases the flora and fauna of the area and over an extended period of time. This is the newest Natural History museum that we have seen anywhere.

This museum is one part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. I didn't think we'd ever get out of the center...there is SO much to see. The center does allow a second day re-entry, so either leave for lunch/dinner or come back the next day to be able to take in this entire exhibit! ENJOY!

Not large at all, but nicely done. These museums are listed as several in one, but the ONE is most true, You pay for all and the nice thing is that if one person is most interested in natural history and another in guns, you can both spend time where you prefer. it is rather small compared to the big...

When I first was researching the Buffalo Bill Museum, I thought maybe this one wouldn't be one I would be interested in. We live in SD so many of the animals spotlighted in the Draper are common to home as well, but BOY WAS I WRONG! We LOVED the Draper Natural History Museum. It has many inter-active event for all...
