Our Cody Firearms Museum is undergoing a full renovation!
Please note: the Cody Firearms Museum reopened with a Grand Opening event on July 6, 2019. We hosted a CFM Veteran VIP Experience on July 5.
While the Cody Firearms Museum of course houses most of the firearms in the Center of the West’s collection, each of the other museums of the Center also include firearms. While the museum undergoes renovation, we invite visitors to journey throughout the entire facility to see both permanent as well as additional temporary installations of guns.
Visitors will also want to take advantage of touch screens that allow you to view the entire collection online, and even digitally curate your own exhibit!
So, if you are traveling to the Center sometime this spring and were planning to visit the firearms museum as part of your visit, please be patient. We are excited to complete the renovation and share the completely new Cody Firearms Museum when it reopens in this summer!
