On Wednesday, March 1, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, moves to its spring schedule, open 10 a.m.–5 p.m. daily. The schedule remains in effect for the months of March and April. On May 1, summer hours of 8 a.m.–6 p.m. begin.
The Center celebrates its Centennial throughout 2017—one hundred years since the death of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody and the establishment of the Buffalo Bill Memorial Association, the parent organization of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Center events will be Centennial-themed during the year; more information on events can be found at centerofthewest.org/calendar.
In honor of the Centennial, the Center has also published a new book, Buffalo Bill Center of the West: Celebrating the Spirit of the American West. Collaborating with Morrison Creative of Cody, the large format volume tells the story of the Center’s five museums and research library through curator essays and stunning photography of its collection. Web visitors can view thousands of the Center’s artworks, artifacts, specimens, photographs, and other objects at collections.centerofthewest.org.
