It’s a bit scary driving up to Lookout Mtn, but the view at the top is amazing! We arrived too late to see the museum, so we can’t comment on that. Buffalo Bill’s grave is just a short walk up the hill from the museum....More

The Buffalo Bill Cody grave-site is a must stop for any western history buff. The museum is small but has several wonderful Buffalo Bill artifacts. I don't remember the admission cost but it was fair. There's a gift shop for trinkets and a small cafe...More

The museum is mostly outfits and old show posters. The views form the observation desk are great on a clear day. The short walk (bike and wheelchair access) up to Buffalo Bills grace is good exercise- easy Walk.

Buffalo Bill’s burial site was a great historical place to visit. Do NOT order a rootbeer float! It will overflow due to the elevation. Lesson learned.

Very cool to see the grave of Buffalo Bill. We did not go inside the museum part, but you can still take in the view for free. Unobstructed views of the mountains from the parking lot, and we even saw animals such as a red...More
