This museum I believe has the one of the largest collection of carriages and wagons which some are used in the Frontier Days parade.

Have been to the Frontier Days Museum several times and always enjoy the art work. The buggies, carriages, and stage coaches on display are very nice. A lot of history and several videos to watch. Worth visiting.

This is a very modern facility but shows off the frontier lifestyle very well. It's difficult for us urban folks to appreciate the significance of rodeos in the West but this small museum does its best. We wanted something that told us about the area in a short time and this fitted the bill. We saw all we wanted to... More

Something for everyone. GREAT rodeo, 4 parades (largest horse parades in US), breakfast provided by Kiwanis Club and Boy Scouts (feeds over 3000!), fantastic horse teams and carriages. Art shows, shopping, micro brews and more!

First time visitors from Australia, we were truly surprised and impressed by the museum's large collection of carriages and wagons, and the rich history of the west with the added touches of Xmas. The younger members of the family enjoyed the children's activity centre trying on hats, sitting on a saddle and driving a wagon. We were welcomed by the... More

This museum is worth the visit. It celebrates the rodeo cowboy and is comparable in value to the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. It is difficult to see everything in one visit.

A must see museum if you love cowboys and the old West. Lots of history and well worth the time. Located a couple of miles from downtown Cheyenne, its a easy hop from the Depot Museum and the old Governors Mansion. Don't miss any of them!
