Lots of history here. Also great views. It's a very quick trip from Denver for those in a hurry. Well worth the drive in my opinion.

A lot of information on early 20th century west. We had a good time but were restricted by some time constraints.

At the top of Lookout Mountain you should stop and walk a very short distance to the gravesite. It is interesting to see the stone and its inscription.

Fantastic view and history lesson all wrapped up into one. BB was a legend in his loyalty and compassion for the west and the people that lived there.

If you go up to visit Buffalo Bill's Grave and Museum, you will not be disappointed. Great views along the way and atop the mountain. There's even a gift shop.

If you are into history you must stop by. The views from the burial site are amazing. You can spend 30 minutes or 3 hours taking in the history and the amazing views. If traveling from Denver up to the mountains it is about 10 minutes off the highway.

What a terrific ride we had up to the Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum. It provided great views of Golden and Denver. The history of Buffalo Bill, in the museum, is interesting, but the presentation is really dated. I think this park is owned by the City of Denver and it looks like not much updating has occurred.
