My husband and I visited this site on our way out of Denver heading west, and after visiting the gravesite and seeing the spectacular view, we had a very nice breakfast at their cute cafe/gift shop.

This was an excellent museum that contained the personal belongings of William Cody along with a vast display of posters for his various performances. The film of his life story was excellent and recently updated. The museum presented a balanced view of his extensive career and was very well laid out. Very educational for all ages. He was forward thinking pro-women’s rights and pro-native American rights. With his successes came failures which were accurately described. There is a lunch place and gift shop next door. The grave is beautifully preserved and of course the panoramic view from Lookout Mountain is amazing. There is a lot to absorb so give yourself time to really explore the exhibits.
I was glad I finally made it up here with a friend who’d already been. We walked up from the lower parking. And the people before us paid it forward so my friend and I got in for free. We came in partway through the educational video and loved it, kudos to the museum for making it. The exhibits were neat too, I like sitting on the horse that moves, the jolt was surprising haha. I enjoyed my time here. You can visit the grave and not the museum, but I got something out of it. I also loved the gift shop. So many quirky things!
