Interesting, extensive collections! Interpretation could be much improved. For example, how a repeating rifle works is never explained. The video explaining flint lock vs. cap vs. cartridge is good for novices. Look for the temporary exhibits -- the current borrowed Smithsonian exhibit is quite good

What a learning experience this Museum was. The evolution of firearms over the years and how they looked is something to see. This is the most comprehensive collection of American firearms in the world

This is the most extensive gun museum I have ever been to. I really enjoyed walking through the multiple floors of weapons they have on display here. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in such things.

Cabinets full of serried ranks of guns. I'm not into guns, and you would need to be a real enthusiast to appreciate it. I believe the presentations are due for updating

A great part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Even if you are not a gun collector or gun enthusiast, the displays are wonderful and very educational. Make sure you have lots of time to wander around.

Fascinating wall to wall displays of guns and weaponry. We entered this museum at the end of our day at the Buffalo Bill center and knew we were too tired to digest all that was being presented. Our plan is to make another trip in the Spring and start with the Gun museum.

This museum has grown greatly since my first visit in the 80s. It's exhibits are expansive, very well planned and world class. From firearms to wildlife to frontier Indian displays, impossible to do it justice in a one day visit or by mere words. It is worth going out of one's way to visit. Do not do yourself a disservice...
