Not only are the museums great, but the BBHC does a fantastic job of catering! We had an excellent meal and extended service for our WASDA conference group! Thanks for making the experience memorable!

Had a great day at this museum. Very entertaining. The kids were very excited. I recommend the show with the 4 living birds that is performed in the garden. Kids love this experience and it is a great learning for them.

The firearms museum is amazing! That is the real reason we chose to visit and we certainly were not disappointed! About the time we thought we were done looking at guns and were ready to move on to another section, the docent told us there were more guns on the lower level! This is a must see for the gun enthusiast! After the second level of guns, we only had time to view the Buffalo Bill museum. The exhibits are well done. Tickets are good for two days and you could easily spend more than one day there. This is a must see!
