Buffalo Bill Historical Center – It may sound like a local dust catcher. It’s not. It’s a world-class museum and interpretive center, or more correctly, five museum centers:
- Cody Firearms Museum
- Whitney Gallery of Western Art
- Buffalo Bill Museum
- Plains Indian Museum
- Draper Museum of Natural History.
There is no better place to get an overview of the Greater Yellowstone Region – geology, natural history, and human history. Not to mention the colorful life of Buffalo Bill Cody, to whom the center is dedicated. Located on the west side of Cody, Wyoming, this is one of the limited number of museums in the country worth a visit in its own right – providing, of course, that you don’t mind spending a full day in a museum.
