Had no idea about this place until someone at the hotel where I stayed in Denver strongly recommended it. I was glad she did. The museum chronicled the life of the popular Buffalo Bill Cody.

This was a reasonably priced great destination for our family. The museum is full of some really cool items and facts about Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show. It also has an interactive area where kids can rope a calf and put on cowboy clothing. My family loved it!

Go there if you get the chance. Cool musuem with lots to look at. The tour is self guided. It's neat to see the grave site too. Spectacular mountain views. Decent gift shop, but a lot of made in China stuff. The buffalo burgers were tasty.

We stumbled on this while taking a side road - glad we did. The drive along Lookout Mountain Road was so much fun and the sights along the way were great. We got there after the museum closed but the grave site was opened and free.

Great views and you see where an icon is laid to rest. It's free. The museum is only $5 and worth it. It's all worth the trip.

After going up the mountain and enjoying the views and trails, this is a good place to stop and stretch, or just to take in more of the scenery. There is a restaurant, snack shop, gift shop, and museum. The grave is definitely worth the short walk to visit and see a piece of history.

This was a last minute decision ... So glad we did it! Beautiful scenery on the way from Denver. Very nicely done, clean. Awesome gift shop and snack bar. Good collection of all the cheesy stuff you'd expect. Food very good, great BLT and onion rings, veg soup really was homemade.

This was a suprise! I was expecting cheesy tourism, but instead learned about a visionary and supporter of human rights.
