A serious enthusiast can easily spend a day here. Thoughtfully displayed and well cared for. It's impressive to stand there knowing you're actually looking at one of Wild Bill Hickok's Colt revolvers. Many other rare and historically significant pieces.

My husband and our boys would have spent the whole day in there if they could. They were fascinated by the large array of firearms from that era. They thoroughly enjoyed it. If you go here be prepared for a lot of time to be allotted for gun enthusiasts to drool. Great museum! Would do it again! June 2007

My husband loves firearms so this place was made for him. He went back another day (no extra charge) to see the 1500 additional guns in the basement.

I could have spent DAYS in this portion of the Museum. The displays are FANTASTIC! You enter at the start of firearms in the 1500's and they step by step show the progression of Firearms through history! DO NOT MISS THIS!!!!!!!!

They have over 7000 guns with a significant portion on display going back several hundred years.They are well displayed and you can get your nose within a few inches of some of the most famous guns of the old west.

We returned to the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum for a 9th visit - it never gets old! What a special place and the "Best" firearm museum we've ever seen. An absolute "Must See" while in Wyoming.

Lots of memorabilia from TV stars, including shows like Bonanza and Have Gun Will Travel, guns, gunbelts, artifacts. The "watermelon" gun was a novel historical element.

Great for the gun enthusiast. Fine for families. Worth it for me buy may not be cup of tea for all. However, it was right next to the Buffalo Bill center so probably worth it even if you are only tacitly interested in firearms.
