The drive up to the museum is nothing short of amazing. We went up from Golden and the views of Golden, the college, and the Coors brewery were breathtaking. Between that and watching the para-gliders sail past, it was hard to keep my eyes on the road.

The museum is really quite good. Tons of Buffalo Bill and Wild West Show memorabilia. It's really quite amazing how many artifacts they have.

The grave site is neat, nothing too amazing, but simple and pretty. It's too bad there are so many radio towers in the way of the view off the mountain. The gift shop is overwhelming. There is something for everyone in there!

Worth a trip up for sure!

Museum houses many items from Buffalo Bill's touring wild west show. An interesting look into the not-so-distant past. One plaque (or picture, can't remember which) proudly shows Buffalo Bill taking the scalp of an Indian --- which shows how much times have changed.

Lookout Mountain is amazing. We went to the museum but they were closing, however they sent us over to the gift shop and then over to the simple grave. Being the lover of all western, this was awesome for me and my family. The food in the gift shop is amazing and all the souvenirs are cute. I'm very happy I got to see this little piece of history !! Go see it!

This is probably the best view view in the Denver area. I can not give my personal experience with the museum but the friends who went in seemed to enjoy it. The fee is only to go into the museum, not to look at the views or grave. From the parking lot you have a view of the city of Denver to the east and an amazing mountain view to the west. It is fairly easy to get to from I70.
