  • Beautiful Vista, great place to take visitors to get a feel of the mountains and a view with easy access. Perfect place to watch a sunset. Nice museum Cafe & shop as well.
  • I had always thought Buffalo Bill was a gunslinger, like the other Bills of the late 19th century: Wild Bill and Billy the Kid. This straightened me out. I think we spent $12 for entry for a family of four. There were 4-5 rooms packed with history about the legacy of Buffalo Bill. A travel ledger even proved that his show visited my hometown of Cadillac, Michigan during WWI! We were here for an hour and half, and my family most enjoyed the presentation of the quibble over where the body of Buffalo Bill should be kept, and why the citizens of Cody, WY were ready to pay a ransom to have his remain re-located there. I am now inspired to bring the fam to Cody, WY to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.
