A very nice stop along I-70. The view is spectacular. The museum is small and can be visited in about 20 mins but is very interesting and has neat artifacts. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, helpful and informative.

We ended up the excursion at Buffalo Bill museum and grave spot. This is a great place to learn about native american culture and wild west lifestyle. Perfect to visit during fall.

The gravesite is at the top of Lookout Mountain, with a lot of switchbacks on the way up. If you don’t like that kind of driving, coming up the other side is easier. Once there the views are breathtaking and the grave itself is well-maintained....More
