In honor of the 173rd birthday of our namesake, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West extends FREE admission to all visitors on Sunday, February 24, 2019.
Our resident printer, Mike Parker, will be set up in the Buffalo Bill Museum by the printing press. Visitors can join Mike for instruction on printing, and print out their own names using his small press. Take home your work as a souvenir!
