We spent a few hours here, but you could easily spend the whole day. This is a first rate museum with a ton of interesting exhibits and memorabilia.

We spent two afternoons going through the many exhibits in this museum. Over 7000 guns on display, many animals, art and Indian displays. Very much enjoyed the experience of this museum.

The Buffalo Bill Center has undergone an amazing transformation over the years. It includes Fire Arms, Plains Indians, Western Art, Natural History and Buffalo Bill exhibits. Within the art section there is a replica of Remington's studio. There is a live birds of prey demonstration.

It's like four museums in one. You can spend most of a day, easily. My 17 and 20 year old sons enjoyed it too! Very well done!
