This is a totally amazing collection of four museums. Buffalo Bill Cody was the reason for going and that museum covers his life story in minute detail. We enjoyed seeing his saddles, guns, clothes; and reading all about his adventures; watching old films and hearing all about the shows he put on. I enjoyed talking to the gentleman printer about his antique press and making my own bookmark was fun. For anyone with an interest in the story of the wild west this is not to be missed. But then there is more, the Yellowstone Museum too, what a bonus. This is a totally captivating journey through Yellowstone taking in the flora and fauna; looking at the impact of people - indigenous, settlers, politicians, army; the natural balance and imbalance; the re-introduction wolves etc. I didn't know about anything about Buffalo I do now and having them seen one in the Park I was so much better informed. The Plain Indians museum displays a wealth of information about the indigenous people and they way they were treated when the settlers arrived. I guess its reveals a fair, if not too palatable account at times of the hardship they encountered. Take time to read the stories and enjoy the most beautiful collection of head dresses, clothes, tools and weapons. We spent the best part of an afternoon one day and the morning the next (one ticket allows this) there. You'd need more time to do it full justice, We have some excellent museums in the UK, but I know it is the best I've been too. Such a shame I'm on the other side of the pond!
