I was so pleased to witness sheer plains Indian collections which it had the Little Big Horn, Sand Creek Massacre stories and artefacts. There were so many items they used to possessed during the conflicts. Not to be missed!

This museum combines great information and history along with outstanding artifacts. The replicas were also great. I enjoyed this museum and would recommend it to everyone.

If you like history of the Plains Indians and artifacts, incredible beadwork, then this is the place to visit. Plan to spend some time here, and if you have children, they will really enjoy the "lifelike" exhibits. A great place to spend some time exploring and learning about Plains Indians.

The Plains Indian section of this museum was very well done. not only were there artifacts but replicas of the housing and tepees of the plains tribes. Beautiful Sioux beading and elk's teeth regalia. This was a moving and beautiful display.

This museum is a MUST SEE while in Cody, Wy. The statues placed around the museum are indiscribable. The history of the Plains Indian will transport you into their lives both visual and auditory.

Another great portion of the Cody Center are all the exhibits on the Plains Indians. You could spend a lot of time taking them all in - - they are very well placed and interesting to walk through.

This Museum was also inside the Bill Cody Center. It showed how the Indians lived, even had a teepee. You got a good feel how the Indians survived and lived in the west during Bill Cody's time. I really enjoyed it.

Informative, well presented, unmissable. You get a real sense of the time, place and history of the Plains Indians.

We saw the Plains museum toward the end of our Buffalo Bill Center visit and were reaching that stage of exhaustion and information overload. We did not see the entire museum, however, the exhibits we saw were incredible. Archaelogical findings were presented as though you were on site, historical representation of driving buffalo over cliffs ... things I've read about... More

Sorry to bust anyone's bubble but this museum is just highly overrated. Yes it does have a Ruger & Winchester collections - but if you are not into firearms there's only the artworks left to see. A better plains indian museum is in Browning MT or surpringly Indianapolis IN. And the Charlie Russell museum in Great Falls MT This museum... More
