  • The museum was pretty interesting. I didn't know all that much about Buffalo Bill before coming but I definitely learned some interesting facts about his busy and fruitful life. Very cool to find out that he was an advocate not only for women's suffrage but for equal pay as well.
  • What a neat surprise for our family! We stumbled upon this gem of a place purely upon accident, but are so glad we did. The admission was very reasonably priced, and the museum was interesting and informative. We highly recommend this place!
