You are dropped off here for about 40 minutes as part of your trolley tour around town. Rodeo enthusiasts would enjoy this.

Living in Fort Collins, I've been waiting to visit Cheyenne. The Old West Museum was our first stop, and we loved it! It took us about an hour to walk through the museum, learning all about Frontier Days in the process. Loved the carriages and all the historical items. Definitely worth the trip!

We loved it and spent three days at either the rodeo, concerts or on the rides. The people were very friendly and the kids loved it. We will go back.

The museum was quaint but had enough old west memorabilia and artifacts to have me engaged for over an hour. I enjoyed the gift shop and talking with staff about the upcoming Frontier Days 2016. I plan on bringing my family to next years event!!

If you enjoy rodeos, this is a great place to visit. We took our 10 year old daughter and she enjoyed the scavenger hunt they offered. This kept her interested in all the history. Wagons and carriages were great. Rodeo history of the biggest rodeo in the world was extremely interesting. There is a hands on kids section as well... More

WOW! CFD was attended by 500,000 people last year which goes to show just how popular it is. The museum has saddles, carriages, trophy buckles and a huge display of cowboy art work and artifacts going back a hundred years. This is a 2 hour attraction if you are interested in Cheyenne & the Cowboys . Highly recommend !

Third Largest privately owned carriage collection in the US (its pretty impressive). They have a ton of exhibits to look at including a children's room that is very interactive. When we were here they had a special art gallery on display. Also if you love Chris LeDoux then this is a must see! They have a lot of fun info... More

Worth the time to learn about Cheyenne Frontier Days. The exhibits are interesting and they had a great Western Art Exhibit when we visited. The movie giving the overview of Frontier Days is a little long, and a bit outdated, but still very informative.

We come here fairly often with our four kiddos (7-19months). They love the horses and cart exhibits everywhere. But they really prefer the kids room after about 15 min of everything else. My husband and I loved the theatre with the rodeo blips, and the art walkway. We found it a little expensive for the "thrill", but for hardcore rodeo... More
