“Expected More”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

With a name like "Old West Museum" I expected to see more than wagons, stage coaches, etc. Would have liked to see more artifacts of the Old West. At least I would have like more history of Frontier Days. The children room looks fun.

“An Annual Affair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Granted I only live 40 minutes from Frontier Days it has been an annual event for our family for the last 20 years. From parades to rodeos to great food to terrific concerts. A cowboy celebration.

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We love visiting the Old West Museum around Frontier Days. It is always so full of visitors and we love to visit the gift shop. If you are in the area, there is so much heritage at the museum. Be sure to stop and take a piece of Cheyenne home with you.

“Just the museum..............The Old West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Old frontier Days is over and won't happen till next year again but that doesn't mean that you have to miss out on what it is all about. Take the time and visit the museum. Discover the stagecoachs, learn who is the champions from the past Cheyenne days. View the acticities of what frontier days are all about. When you are done you may be left with the feeling that you will want to make a trip back the following year to actually be there at the end of July when frontier days and the rodeo are actually happening! We enjoyed this very much.
