An absolute outstanding museum and display. I wish I had more time to take in the many excellent galleries and displays. A person could easily spend a whole day taking in all this place has to offer. Very easy to locate and close to Best Western (sse other review).

What a surprise. We went here on the recommendation of the hotel clerk and were not disappointed. The 5 distinct museums/areas were most interesting, and the art gallery and Indian section the most interesting of all. There is a pretty garden outside with some interesting sculpture. All is all good value and very interesting/.

We were pleasantly surprised with our visit to this attraction. It was very well laid out, many exhibits that were extremely informative with adequate staff to answer any questions you may have had about this era in American history. Highly recommend spending an afternoon at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

This is a wonderful snapshot of the West. There is an amazing display of firearms, a wing on Native American plains tribes and of course a wing on Buffalo Bill. Plan to spend a day here.
