If you don’t know a lot about Buffalo Bill, this is a great place to find about his life and business ventures. On display are props and other pieces from his life. The museum is rather small, so it won’t take long, but was worth...More

We really enjoyed our visit here. The museum is good value for money and really informative. We loved the dressing up as a cowboy! Amazing views from the car park. Cafe is good and the food is tasty. Gift shop has lots of good gifts.

Expected a typical historical site. Instead we found a truly interesting description of a true character who helped build the West.

The Museum has numerous artifacts, guns, clothes, and photos, etc, from Buffalo Bill's career of entertainment and Wild West Shows. There are several exhibits which also include other stars and members of his shows!, Enjoyed it. Worth the stop. We toured in 2016.

Anytime someone from out of town visits, one of the first places we'll take them is Buffalo Bill's Grave & Museum. It is a short but scenic drive from Denver with great views at the top. All in all it's a fun place to visit.

The museum has good displays and interesting information, including a short documentary that plays on loop. They are working on an additional American Indian area. The grave is well kept. The gift store is kind of like those at gas stations on highways—random and of...More

Fun and easy walk. Great for young kids. It's a beautiful drive up with great views. Once you're at the top, you can eat, shop or just enjoy the area.

Trip Advisor does not allow me to post a link but if you search "Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave Golden Colorado" you will find a nice website with all the info you need on their " plan your trip" page.
