Explore the saga that is the real West in our five, family-friendly museums: Draper Natural History Museum, Buffalo Bill Museum, Plains Indian Museum, Whitney Western Art Museum, and Cody Firearms Museum. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West shares the epic stories of Yellowstone and the American West together in one place, for one price. Join us as we connect people to the stories of the American West through our galleries, exhibitions, programs, and kid-approved activities. Through your presence and participation in all we have to offer, you will find that this is your West!
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is located in the authentic western town of Cody, Wyoming, founded by our namesake, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. We’re also located in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone region—just outside Yellowstone National Park’s East Gate. So we’re surrounded by the majesty of the Rockies and are privy to the history and myths of the Old West, the vibrant life of the New West, and the living cultures of Plains Indian peoples.
