One of the five museums in the Buffalo Bill Centre, it was very interesting but disappointing in that there was more work by more modern artists on display rather than older ones like Remington.

I am a fan of Alfred Jacob Miller, and I was not disappointed. Compares to the Gilcrease in Tulsa, and Amon Carter in Fort Worth. Truely something not to miss. A sensory and emotional experience, I can't say enough, so I won't try!

Plan to spend several hours to truly enjoy this gallery. Make sure to take advantage of the FREE headphones for the narration of the many pieces of art and sculptures throughout this fine gallery.

I greatly enjoyed the sculptors. I have always liked Remington. Afraid it's out of my price range. But I did like seeing all his work. The paintings and other works of the west were interesting too. Kids were bored in this one. This gallery is one of five buildings of the buffalo bill center.

One of the best collections of western art. Many Charles Russell and Frederick Remmington bronzes are among the many in. This collection. Breathtaking paintings with amazing clarity and many painted in the early 1800's. There museum ticket is good for two-days and depending you your interest it could take that long to experience all that the museum offers.

Such an extensive and well-done museum! You shall not be disappointed and it is perfect for all ages. The exhibits are excellent and accessible to all. It will take you back to another time and place with a newly found appreciation for what "the people" had to do to survive. The beauty and craftsmanship of items is not found today.... More

I regret I never saw the full extent of what items have been removed according to the review below for I agree that I don't need to see so much new avant garde Art as much as I enjoy old west art but what remains pleases me very much. At the canyon discovery center in Yellowstone I tell clients that... More

Very nice paintings and sculptures. I especially liked the display describing how they make large casts for sculptures. There were a few pieces with nudity - just a caution for those with kids. Great area for the kids to draw. They have pose-able models or they can sit in front of the big windows and draw the nature outside or... More

I have always loved going to the Whitney Gallery of Western Art museum at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, WY. The western art as painted, sculpted, and depicted by the artists of the 19th and early 20th century presented an emotional, spiritual, and also realistic view of life in the "west" before modern times arrived. The large, oversized... More
