Meh, it's ok. More like a big gift shop and a stairway to a fanced off lookout point with a slab of concrete. Nothing to write home about, but you can grab some snacks and use the restroom and take in some scenery. The drive is nice.

We took a drive up to the Buffalo Bill grave and museum. It was a beautiful drive with a few switchbacks and some elevation gain. It was a paved road, however.

A great experience in "stepping back in time." Upon Lookout Mt. one can look out over the plains and imagine the valley full of buffalo. The museum in interesting and the short walk to Buffalo Bills Grave is nice

A stop on my roadtrip. Beautiful views. A must see for any Buffalo Bill enthusiast. I know why William Cody fell in love with the area. The museum has so many wonderful artifacts, definitely a must see.

This is a small museum of the life & times of "Buffalo" Bill Cody, not the huge one in Cody Wyoming. It was very well done & we learned a lot & enjoyed our quick visit. The views are spectacular & the gift shop was great.

A lot of information on early 20th century west. We had a good time but were restricted by some time constraints.
