“Fun in Wyoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Found this by chance when wandering up the main drag in Cody. Way cool! I was very impressed with the display and all the research that was done on the artifacts. Well organized displays from the revolution through WWII; it's an excellent complement to the Bill Cody Museum. Free to get in but it runs on donations so plan on chipping in to support their efforts!

“A lot of US history in one room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Well worth a walk through for any firearms enthusiast! There were guns and other weapons from the Revolutionary War to the roaring 20's! The owner was friendly, knowledgeable and totally passionate about the display and the whole concept in general! The museum is a little hidden on a side street so be sure to look it up!

“Something to do...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

My husband and boys enjoyed seeing the old guns. It's free to visit and very small. I'm not much for museums, but my husband can stay and read every paper if he was allowed. It gave us something to do while we waited for our trolley tour to start. It can be as long as you make it, quick in and out or read about where the guns were found.
