We were not in Cheyenne for the actual Frontier Days but having the opportunity to look at the museum's film of past rodeos was very informative. Some aspects of rodeos seem a bit violent but I understand that the cowboys thrive on participating. Best of...More

I am not positive but unless it is a service dog I don't think dogs are allowed. The same would be true for the trolley history tour. I would suggest you call to verify if dogs are allowed inside.
