Great history of the Great Plains people

Wonderful depiction of the Plains Indians and history. How people lived before and after the introduction of the horse on the plains and living conditions.

This is one of my favorite museums. The exhibits are amazing and you learn so much ablaut the early life on the plains in the West. You truly owe it to yourself to see this if you have any interest in the West and its history.

There is no better place than this to learn the history of the first Americans in the western United States. From the earliest known Native American settlements to modern day living, the lives and times of a frequently misunderstood people are well described in the numerous displays and exhibits in this unit. We could have easily spent an entire day... More

This is a part of the amazing museum in Cody,WY! Get a two day pass and take the time to see everything. My husband and I broke up the day by taking a lunch break, but saw most of the museum. The Museum of the Plains Indian is not to be missed. Spectacular!

The exhibits were excellent. It just doesn't cover all the tribes. Supposed to caver Rockies to the Mississippi, but nothing on Osage and little on the Sioux.

At times it is very humbling to see this presentation of the Plains Indians- a whole villiage under one roof. A great experience!

The museum is part of the complex at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. The exhibits are very well done, although there aren't a lot of interactive displays for children. There is a log house and a tipi, as well as other visually stunning exhibits about hunting, jewelry, and traditions. In the hallway on the way to the museum,... More

This is by far the best exhibit of Native American I have seen in ether the USA or Canada. Even if you if you do not know much about this or have never explored it will give you a quick study in the history of The West. It is amazing to view the artwork and crafts of the tribes and... More
