Enjoy a private, expert-led tour tailored to your curiosities and questions. Learn hidden secrets, visit VIP areas, and forget that you ever thought museum tours were boring!

Tours start at $90 for a single individual to take a private 2-hour tour, with discounts available for parties of 2 or more, as well as discounts for shorter tour times.
And if you have limited time or specific topic interests, contact Exclusive Tours staff—we may be able to customize based on your time and interests!
Go beyond the labels to discover why Yellowstone is one of the most beloved places on earth for people, plants, and animals. Get hands-on with the stories of bears, wolves, and other species that call this region home, while the science behind erupting geysers or growing mountains might just blow you away!
Discover “behind the art” stories as you dive into the American West through our artworks and artifacts, discovering some of our best kept secrets and hidden treasures with your personal guide.
If you can’t choose just one of our extraordinary museums to explore, not to worry! You can choose several! You’ll have two hours to dip your toe into firearms and art history, or maybe walk through William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s life and legends before encountering Plains Indians cultures. Your interests, your experience!
In addition to our daily Exclusive Tours for all ages and groups, Exclusive Tours at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West also offers fun, interactive, after-hours VIP events for adults. These “Tours & Toddies” experiences include an awesome tour followed by charcuterie and adult beverages! Prices vary by event and tickets are limited.

You get your very own highly trained and personal guide to bring you and your family/ spouse/ friends through the museum(s) of your choice and have your questions answered as they come up. We center tours on what the visitors want to focus on, be they a single specific topic or a general overview of many topics. These are not scripted tours; they’re conversations!
Tour participants also gain access to artifacts and stories not on display to the general public, and you get to take home limited-edition souvenir swag only available to Exclusive Tour participants.
We have 1 Hour or 2 options available. If a custom time limited is needed, please call the Exclusive Tours Office to discuss options.
