Just one of 5 museums you visit at the Buffalo Bill museum complex, the Draper is one of the very best natural history museum's I've been to. Interactive and informative, the layout takes you step by step through the animals and environment of the West....More

Seeing precise recreations of the Plains' and Rocky Mountains' animals in their dens and nests from a foot away is amazing and more informative than a zoo or seeing them in the wild.

Amazing Natural History Museum, and one of the best I have ever visited. The museum is well laid out and beautifully designed. The information with each display is very informative. There are videos in various areas which are worth taking the time to view.

Incredible displays representing the major biomes and biodiversity of the northern Rockies and northern Plains. Fantastic dioramas and nice use of media make this a must see.

This was a really good museum overall; I didn't find it as interesting as the other wings of the Buffalo Bill complex, but it was still quite good, and painstakingly put together.
