Everything about Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show was action/adventure. He was hard on animals and performers, but a showman all the way. A static museum has nothing at all to do with what he was. The view of Golden, Denver, and the Eastern Plain is...More

Beautiful drive up the mountain. Great little museum. Nice gift shot. If you have any interest in Buffalo Bill you won't want to miss this if you are in the area. I believe we paid 5 dollars a person to tour the museum. It was...More

Let me start off by saying the history of the old west is not my thing. They had a rather extensive museum if you are into it. The grave itself is not much. I can't speak for the view as it was snowing and foggy...More

Great location on the top of Lookout mountain provides a spectacular view of Denver and many miles to the north, east and south. The museum, while reasonably priced and no more than a 30 minute distraction, could use some spiffing up from its 1950s sideshow...More

Trip Advisor does not allow me to post a link but if you search "Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave Golden Colorado" you will find a nice website with all the info you need on their " plan your trip" page.
