“Comprehensive and detailed.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

This is a serious museum for the avid researcher of the development of the West. A bit overwhelming in terms if detail and breadth of exhibits for the casual holiday visitor.

Staff were very friendly and loved to discuss the area's history. Displays were amazing especially the ones about the cattlemen wars and local tribes. We were impressed with the quality of this museum.

Learn the early Buffalo history. Lots of Native american artifacts. The early history of the cattle industry was well done.

“Wyoming History lesson”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Well laid out. $5 fee. I spent two hours enjoying the walk through the Earliest settlers, Tribal life, the encroachment of white civilization, the battle stories, early ranching, the Tom Horn story, Johnson county war, the story about Bomber Ridge, and the growth of Johnson County and the town of Buffalo.
