Family Vacations in Wyoming: Buffalo Bill Historical Center

Buffalo Bill Historical Center offers summer adventures workshops for kids, teens and adults.

The five museums at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody contain an internationally acclaimed collection of Western Americana. Featured within its walls are masterworks of Western art, a rich collection of Native American artifacts, exhibits on the natural history of the greater Yellowstone area, and an enormous Winchester gun collection.

The museum staff has developed special materials, events, and exhibits just for the younger set. At the Whitney Gallery of Western Art kids can pick up a family guidebook. After completing its questions, they can trade it in for a souvenir. In the Draper Museum of Natural History, kids receive a passport that gets stamped at various stations.
