It is a shame to ask for 10$ per person and $9 for seniors and kids, it will make a family of 4 to think twice if to enter...they should lower the fees especially now that it is out of season,

We stayed in Cheyenne one night on our way to Yellowstone. We really enjoyed our visit to Old West Museum. It is a beautiful well maintained area and the people working there are very friendly and informative.

This was a great museum! Lots of information on rodeos! Lots of wagons and stuff like that. Plus, there was an Art Show with fantastic pictures that were painted in oil or watercolors. Expensive but beautiful. I really enjoyed walking around in here.

I am not positive but unless it is a service dog I don't think dogs are allowed. The same would be true for the trolley history tour. I would suggest you call to verify if dogs are allowed inside.
