The $10 entrance fee was well worth it! The collection of coaches, wagons and other transportation vehicles from days of yore are amazing. From the Studebaker hauling wagon to the early forerunner to the family van (3 seated surrey), each specimen was unique and a wonderful view into the past. The art gallery offered a wide variety of artistic offerings including oil paints, bronze sculptures, native american beadwork and mixed media offerings. All items were for sale and represented all areas of western culture. Children will enjoy the "Hole in the Wall" room filled with children's western dress-up options and props. Even the not-so-young will enjoy the playfulness of this room. Statues outside are wonderful as well. Overall, a fantastic visit, well worth the trip - especially off season when it is empty!

The museum is free for children, adults are $10 each. The museum itself was not worth the money, however the art gallery inside was interesting and we ended up buying some art. The gift shop was WAY overpriced- save yourself a lot of money and go to the Boot Barn to get some WY souvenirs...

The Old West Museum is one of the best ever and anywhere and truly so..... Take time to study everything from the gracious and fun carriages to each piece of priceless western art. You can not leave without the feel of the true west,no way,awesome experience of a lifetime,truly!!!

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.

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.
