A MUST-SEE WILD WEST MUSEUM

The Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming is one of five museums at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It’s a western history museum about the museum’s namesake, as well as some of the biggest characters in the West like Annie Oakley, Sitting Bull, Pawnee Bill, and other members of the Wild West Show. 

If you want to learn about cowboy folklore and pop culture on your way through the Yellowstone area, this is your place to visit.
