  • Awesome. Loved all the historical artifacts. Really cool of you like western history. Oh heck it's really cool even if you don't like western history. If you ever played cowboys and Indians check it out
  • What an experience. Loved everyone there, especially Cloud and Whisper. The chili is the best, ever
  • The museum was fantastic. Just a quick stroll from the museum to the final resting place of Buffalo Bill.
  • This place was hokey but fun. We didn't plan on visiting but it was on a tour we were on and we are glad we did. Lots of old west Americana and the location has really beautiful views. Learned alot about the man (Buffalo bill) that we knew very little about prior to this. Good place to take kids for sure.
  • Resting place of Buffalo Bill atop Lookout Mountain. Great views can be had here, but it was foggy with zero visibility during our trip. The museum charges an entrance fee but the store and fudge/snack shop along with the gravesite and rest of the grounds are free to visit. Large parking lot can accommodate buses and other large vehicles.
