This is a part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Great place for all ages. History of the west in five museums under one roof. Well worth the price of admission. This will be one of the highlights of your vacation. We were in here almost all day. Indian history, natural history, western art, giant gun collection, live... More

We visited as part of the Buffalo Bill Center for the West visit, this was extensive and complete. Super cool. I got a little tired cause it kinda went on forever. Maybe you gotta be a guy to truly appreciate all these guns :-) but I do think it was really impressive and worth the visit.

This is one of the most famous collections of firearms in the world. You could browse them all day, and I did. Contributions to the collection were made by the manufacturers, like Winchester, Savage, Remington. There are rifles I saw that I had only read about.

Honestly, I have said it in most of my reviews, that I am an extreme history buff and travel the USA seeing historical places. This place was among the best I've seen, and that includes my favorite historical place on earth, Gettysburg! There are no words I can write that will do this place justice, it was that incredible. Well... More

Even if you aren't a gun enthusiast, this is well worth the visit - the workmanship on some of the firearms can only be described as art. The evolution of guns is fascinating. And they have lots of movie and TV guns. It took us hours to walk through this section alone!

All five museums at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West are excellent. The Firearms Museum is incredible. Whether you like firearms or not you will enjoy this museum and learn a great deal about the history of firearms and their importance.

This museum is one of the best I have ever been to. They have an extensive collection of firearms spanning about a 400 year period with an emphasis on American makers. The displays are well designed and laid out. The downstairs research and reference collection is extensive.

The place has changed since our last visit and for the better. Multiple floors with more interaction with visitors. The artwork is beautiful and the gun collections second to none. Outside a gentlemen was demonstrating cooking chuck wagon style. Very nice relaxing place but a word of caution. Plan to spend a lot of time here. It is large museum... More
