Beyond Our Walls

Beyond Our Walls

It is often said of our namesake, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, that he brought the West to the world. Continuing that legacy, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West shares its own extraordinary object collection, exhibitions, and expertise beyond our walls with a national—and indeed international—audience.

From the loan of a few artifacts to complete traveling exhibitions, the Center of the West takes the authentic stories of the American West on the road. Here are some of the exhibitions around the country currently featuring objects from the Center.

Few aspects of American history have had a more lasting impact than the exploration and settlement of the western frontier.

Go West! considers evolving notions of the American West through 90 paintings, sculptures, and American Indian artifacts created between the 1830s and the 1920s—from the West’s earliest visual history to the creation of its powerful romantic legacy.
