Museum of the Plains Indians

This was a really good exhibit. My daughter and I learned many things about the Plains Indians as we went through the many displays. It's a great place to go learn!

As part of the Buffalo Bill Museum complex in Cody this is really a MUST SEE to get a feel for the area and its history.

Never have I seen so many Native-American artifacts in one place. This is one of the finest attractions we visited in our three week tour of the West. Highly recommend it for anyone interested in the first Americans.

The museum has great displays with video as well as interactive elements. It tells the story of the Indians, the hardships, the journey they have had just maintaining their culture and surviving. Excellent setup.

This is within the Buffalo Bill Museum and worth seeing. Nothing really new, but still worth the price of admission. See it!
