Overview

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*

I wish I could have spent more time here. A must see for anyone who appreciates history, just FYI, don't take your girlfriend if she doesn't like guns or history.

Found this little upstairs museum by accident online and was so glad we took the time to see it. The owner is so helpful with explaining what's there and where it came from.
