My wife and I were totally swept up by the historical value that was right there before us when we stumbled upon this treasure chest of historical relics on an end of season visit to Cody Wy. We will definitely revisit and whole heartedly recommend this dug up gun museum as a must see for everyone visiting Cody.

A friend told me about this place as I am interested in history and it did not disappoint. Every old gun found from every peroid. Lots of rare and interesting exhibits. Better than the Buffalo Bill gun museum nearby because its real.

This was really an interesting place and the cost is donation. Very good history of old guns and some reasons about why they were in the shape they were in. What really bothered me is the fact that they were abandoned. I don't think anyone alive would leave a gun unless it was junk or they were dead... :(

Take a bit of time to pop in this great little museum.. It's free also but you can leave a donation... The owner is a friendly knowledgable guy.. Worth taking an hour out of your day to pop in and take a look

This very interesting museum is like nothing I'd ever seen before. Arranged in chronological order, the displays include everything from Civil War to modern times. All artifacts have been "dug up", love the rifle in the tree. Owners are very knowledgeable and very friendly. Don't forget to pet Harley the Chihuahua.
