This was a very interesting little museum. We would have spent more time here had we not had the grandkids with us. We spend about 15 minutes, but could have spent 30 or 45 minutes.

An excellent free museum about the cow girls at the start of last century. Very interesting and informative. My only objection was the film could have been edited a bit. It was very long for a museum.

Support your local museum. They have great stories of the cowgirls who also participated in rodeo in traditionally male sports. They have a gift store next door to help support the effort.

It is FREE! Take your kids (especially your little cowgirls!) to see this museum dedicated to the lives & struggles of cowgirls. Saddles & cowgirl outfits on display. Worth checking out!

Admission is free. There are a lot of cowgirl outfits, saddles and information. There is also a short movie you can look at to see the life of actual cowgirls. Worth a stop.

A hidden/camouflaged gem for history lovers/learners! You’d never assume the amazing things you’ll find inside what appears to be the office of Cheyenne Storage! I wouldn’t make a special trip to Cheyenne for this museum, however it’s a wonderful way to spend an hour or...More
