We decided to take our 18 month old Grandson here for something to do that was inside! Not a lot for him he didn't want to do too much in the kids room! It was interesting but not a place I'd pay to go back too!

This is the second time that our family have visited this museum and it never ceases to amaze us! There is loads of videos depicting all aspects of Frontier Days, memorabilia, photos and of course, carriages! Beautiful statues welcome you to the museum and it will not disappoint.

This museum is very interesting. If you like old western wagons, it's a MUST. Lane frost has his memorial statue here and his pearl snap and saddles are inside! There is a kids room that would probably be hard to get your kids to leave after playing in it! I recommend going if you have time!

What a fun time we had. There is a unique and varied wagon display here. There is also a fun kids' room where kids can dress up. It is free admission for kids under 12 years. I would love to return for the Cheyenne Days. It seems like that would be an experience.

Outstanding collection of memorabilia and displays that relate the history of Cheyenne and "The Daddy of Them All" rodeo. You'll learn all there is to know about Cheyenne Frontier Days and see about every type of wagon, buggy and stagecoach ever used in the west. Admission is a bit steep but they do have Senior and veteran discounts. Elderly adult,... More

Touted as the largest carriage museum west of the Mississippi. The carriages are of different eras and sizes. All have been used in the Frontier Days parade. Lots of rodeo and Western stuff to put the visitor in a rodeo mood. Just across the road, one can visit the Big Boy steam engine.

I stopped here because it is an AAA "gem" attraction. If you like rodeos and rodeo history, then this is the place for you. Lots of Frontier Days artifacts and videos. Also lots of wagons used in Frontier Days parades. Most of the wagons were painted bright colors and advertised local businesses, so even though they may be historic wagons,... More

The museum's focus is frontier days an annual event in Cheyenne but a lot of exhibits about the old west and a wonderful collection of various types of horse drawn wagons. There is an admission fee but we were not charged. Good place to spent a hour or so. Gift shop but not a lunch spot.
