Stroll through history while viewing over a thousand of relic guns & other weapons from many different time periods and locations including “America’s War of Independence, The Gold Rush Era, The U.S. Civil War, The Old West & Indian Wars, World War I, The Roaring 20’s and World War II”. The Cody Dug Up Gun Museum is one of Cody, Wyoming’s newest attractions and a great look at history for the whole family. Open to the public in the spring of 2009. The museum is a proud sponsor of the Cody Gunfighter’s Show at the world famous Irma Hotel (just steps away from our museum!) We are members of the Cody Chamber of Commerce and enthusiastic supporters of Cody’s historical attractions. Open 9:am – 9:pm - 7 days a week from May through September *WE ARE CLOSED FOR THE WINTER SEASON, SEE YA'LL AGAIN IN MAY OF 2018*

This museum was a surprise find. Even though compact, it is packed with information and displays. Also it is free and donations are optional.

We were driving through Cody and had read about this museum, with very little time this was a GREAT thing to do. The owner was there making the experience even better talking to guests about how he acquired guns. The entrance fee is by donation...More

These folks have put together so much history in this museum. Well documented and examined firearms with small clues detailing the probable history of each piece. Well worth the time.

We have no interest in guns or weaponry of any kind, really, but we had time to kill and our hotel was next door, so we went up the stairs to this cute museum. It is basically the collection of its proprietor, who was friendly,...More

This museum is worth the stop! My husband was very impressed with the collection that they had. Not right on the main strip but still close to the main attractions.

This was a very cool, unique display. Guns have been dug up/found all over the world, and they display them along a timeline, often with other items that have been found next to them (buttons, coins, etc.). It's run on a donation basis, so technically...More

The displays are easy to understand and follow. They are under glass and easy to view. The owner is a very friendly guy and really knows his stuff. It is run on donation, so be generous and help this charming little museum keep running!

This is a tiny, but awesome old gun museum. The displays of the "dug up" rusted fascinating guns, swords, knives, etc range from Civil War stuff, to old west stuff, to military stuff. The guy who runs the museum is a delight. He's very friendly...More
