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.

Learned a lot about the history of the Plains Indians - they had a rough life - they sure made the women do a lot of the work!!

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!

This was the highlight of my trip to Montana and Wyoming aside from Blackwater Creek Ranch. It is the best museum I have ever visited in 56 years in 58 countries. You will learn so much and experience the challenges, joys, wisdom and resilience of the Native Americans of the Great Plains. Unforgettable.

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!

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.
