We thoroughly enjoyed this extensive museum, part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It took us around 2 hours to look around the exhibits and displays, which were both informative and visually interesting.

This museum houses a wonderful and insightful view into the lives of the Plains Indians. One walks away feeling not only a sense of the hardships they endured, but the beautiful art they created, and craftsmanship they used on a daily basis. Highly recommended.

The Buffalo Bill Museum is a must see if you are in Cody. But plan on a two day visit as it is very large with many artifacts. I loved the Plains Indian section and recommend it highly. Wear your walking shoes.

This is quite a bit deeper than the Museum of the American Indian in DC thanks to acquiring the Paul Dyck comprehensive 19th century collection of many thousands of significant and unique pieces from most of the Plains tribes.
