Wow! They told us it would take 45 minutes: we spent 90 minutes totally engrossed. 100 of vintage photos, authentic historic relics, a gift shop with booKS and quality souvenirs. Great for all ages!

We have managed over the last couple of weeks to visit a lot of battlefields and museums and this ranks pretty high up. It’s very good and extremely well laid out, certainly worth a visit.

This is not a large museum, but one of the most enjoyable I have visited. It is large enough to keep you interested throughout, but not so large to get boring. The wide variety of subjects and artifacts keep your interest up.

Thank you for your review! We particularly appreciate your understanding of the size - we do our best to work within the confines of our facility (which we love - especially the 1909 Carnegie library front entrance).

We stopped here on a camping trip. The museum was well worth 1 hour of our time. Even though we live about 1/2 hour away, we had never been. Nice exhibits.

Thank you for your review! We are especially happy to see folks from our region come tour the museum. This part of the world has enough history and attractions to keep people occupied for quite some time.

A great museum about living in the West and particularly in Buffalo. It has some nice items and the staff is great (Nancy!!!). Nice shop as well where you can buy souvenirs made by local artists.

We really liked the Jim gatchell museum and memorial. The ladies were so well informed about local spots, and particularly, how to make the most of a one day visit to Yellowstone.

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Lots on information and things to know about Buffalo and Wyoming in general. Takes 30 to 45 minutes to go through and worth it if you have the time.
