The museum is inside the Buffalo Bill Center and worth the visit. It cost nothing extra and has plenty of information about the plains indians and their history. Well worth the time to tour.

Great job by this museum of neither falsely glorifying or denigrating either side, while telling historically and culturally accurate stories of the Plains culture and the impact white expansion had. This is an experience both educational and enjoyable.

I love Native American art ofall kinds - this museum had the best display. It also weaves the artifacts through history and the various tribes. I would recommend this to and student of Native American Culture or Art Enthusiast.

We went through this museum with a guide, if we had time, we would have gone back for more depth. The natives got a raw deal

This is at the Wild West Buffalo Bill Museum. Incredible display of artifacts, on the level of the Smithsonian. You MUST visit this museum. Allow plenty of time to see it all.

We thoroughly enjoyed this extensive museum, part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It took us around 2 hours to look around the exhibits and displays, which were both informative and visually interesting.

There is a lot to see in this museum and it is sad to see all that was taken away from the Indians from our government, if you have an interest in native American history this is a great place to visit.

This museum is adjoining the Cody Firearms and the Buffalo Bill Center, which makes it convenient to visit them all. It is a great history of the Plains Indians. I enjoyed learning about how they used all the natural resources and Buffalo to meet their...More
