Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum reviews
The best part of this stop for us was all the Stage Coaches. Well displayed and the information plaques were very informative. Overall the was well worth the price of admission more »
My daughter loved the history of the items in the museum as this was her first time here. Definitely would recommend to go when you are in town to see this display. more »
We loved it, could've stayed there all day, but my feet got tired. Great movie provided a resting place. Oh, wow, what displays.
One of the largest collections of carages I've ever seen. Would have been nice to have window light subdued for photos.
