“Made in America” Exclusive Tour

July 21, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MDT

Making of the Modern Gun display in the Cody Firearms Museum.

Curator’s Cut Exclusive Tour
Made in America

With Cody Firearms Museum Curator Danny Michael

July 21, 2023
6–8 p.m.

Join the Cody Firearms Museum curator, Danny Michael, on July 21 at 6 p.m. in exploring the colorful history of firearms manufacturing and tradition in America. Discover the good, the bad, the bizarre, and the brilliant histories of American firearms entrepreneurs, designers, and users.

Get up close with the artifacts and prototypes that helped shape the American gun industry and learn why some things worked, why some things didn’t, and why some things may land you in jail… or worse.

During this premium 2-hour event, Danny shares facts, stories, and tidbits about artifacts from the Cody Firearms Museum collection and the unique histories that come with them!

Following the tour, the group returns to our Exclusive Tours Depot for Q&A, custom charcuterie, and adult beverages. Celebrate the month of July and the history of American firearms with our special “Buffalo Smash” cocktail and Rifle Trifle desserts.

This VIP Exclusive Tour experience is $60 per person, and just $55 for Center of the West members. Spots are limited! Advanced registration is required. Don’t miss this exciting and exclusive evening!
