Inside the Buffalo Bill Center

This was a very large museum. There were guns, pistols, and rifles for every era. It was interesting to walk around and see and compare all the varieties.

This is basically a historical timeline of firearms. Many complex displays sponsored by manufacturers. Collections is in partnership with the Smithsonian. Sensory over load. The best in the world, no joke, it's awesome.

Two stories of guns! Guns displayed in time period, nice displays. Downstairs most guns are in cabinets and drawers. It might take you two days just to look at every one!

Really well categorized, easy to learn about history of firearms and the great men who created them. And there's a fun little shooting gallery.

This is the largest collection of firearms that I have ever seen. It was incredible to spend hours looking through enormous variety of firearms. Make sure to allow enough time as this collection is huge.

This is a do not miss for the gun enthusiast. Check their website, I think they have over 7,000 firearms.

This museum has an impressive collection of firearms but it has so much more. What a delightful surprise. Take the tour and learn about the indians and their culture, the cowboys who were part of the settling of the west and Wild Bill Cody and his life. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Then enjoy the incredible western art. It... More

This had a nice modest selection of antique and unearthed firearms. Was interesting to look at and see progression of firearms over the years. Owner was nice and knowledgeable.
