The Cody Firearms Museum is undergoing an exciting, museum-wide renovation between now and summer 2019. The CFM houses most of the firearms in the collection, but 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. And, we have installed a temporary exhibition in the breezeway leading up to the Firearms Museum. View hundreds of the best firearms from our collection, learn about the history of the museum, and see more information on the renovation in that exhibition.
Visitors will also want to take advantage of two touch screens in the special exhibition—see the entire collection online and even digitally curate your own exhibit!
So, if you are traveling to the Center sometime during the next year and were planning to visit the CFM as part of your visit, please be patient as we do the complete renovation. It’s a very exciting time for us, but we do recognize many visitors have concerns over what this means for their experience. Rest assured that you will still see a good quantity and quality of firearms in the special exhibition and throughout the Center. Then make plans to come back to see us once the extraordinary renovation is complete in mid-to-late summer 2019.
