May 7, 10–11:30 a.m.

Free for members! Coffee & Curators invites members to enjoy coffee, refreshments, and the company of other members as one of the Center of the West’s curators speaks on a topic inspired by the Center’s permanent collections.

Our May program is titled Making Do: A Brief History of Obsolete Firearms on the Frontlines. Danny Michael, Robert W. Woodruff Curator of the Cody Firearms Museum, discusses how in virtually every military conflict the latest and greatest technology isn’t necessarily the deciding factor, and soldiers have often found themselves equipped with whatever was on hand.

Space for this members event is limited and reservations are required. Call 307-578-4008 or e-mail us to reserve your seat. Meet us at the main entrance — or stay tuned for information on how to attend virtually if you prefer.
