“If you are there, stop..”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The center is closed on Sundays, which is a shame. They should look into changing that, at least in the summer. The statue is huge and very cool. It's very easy to find off of Hwy 83 and it's worth the stop to see it. There is a very nice information board near it, so you can get a bit of history. Oakley does have some other sites to see, so if you are in the site seeing mode, stop and see it!

Very nice facility for a wedding reception. Great sculpture outside. Clean and all on one level so no stairs to climb. Clean restrooms.

“Nice stop, beautiful statue”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great spot for information about Buffalo Bill and the history of the area at that time. The statue is beautiful and the new building is very nice. Great job, Oakley. Pair this stop with the Fick Museum, and you'll have a great hour break from traveling the long I-70 corridor.

“Good place to stretch your legs and meet local people”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The impressive cast bronze statue is 2x life-sized and a lot of thought has gone into the presentation and the piece itself. You can ascend the wheelchair accessible hill and view it up close even if the museum is closed. There is a nice old-timey face-cutout at the parking lot where your friends and family can pose as if they are Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley, and maybe one of their kids if they ever had any which is a nice rumor to start. The museum itself is about a third giftshop, a third museum displays, and the rest serves as meeting rooms for the Oakley area, presumably for public large meeting events like town halls. This is a nice addition to the area and a must see place if you find yourself in the Oakley area.

Loved the sculpture. Walk different ways around it to see varied perspective. The museum was cool. Fun little gift shop. I hope to oh back someday!
