"What does it mean to be Crow?" This question was posed to Crow Tribal youth at this year's National Geographic Photo Camp. Youth from Crow were asked to photograph what is meant to be Crow, an initiative to help tribal youth revive culture in their communities. http://ow.ly/DtzO302tTnF

New on view! Another recent addition to the Whitney Western Art Museum is "Choosing of the Arrow" (1849) by Henry Kirke Brown (1814–1886). We are thrilled to own and display this impressive bronze sculpture, the first to be cast in America! Only twenty casts of this rare work were produced, one of which is now here in the Whitney. Please take the opportunity to visit the sculpture in our galleries.

Since 1927, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West has been committed to the greatness and growth of the American West, keeping western experiences alive. The Center of the West, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, weaves the varied threads of the western experience—history and myth, art and Native culture, firearms, and the nature and science of Yellowstone—into the rich panorama that is the American West.

Incredible museum. Really five impressive museums in one. The firearm museum is probably the finest museum of its kind in the world. You could easily spend 2 days in this museum and not see everything. The natural history museum is the same calibre as a Smithsonian museum, but smaller. Ticket prices are good for two consecutive days. If you're within traveling distance consider a membership. Just a little more than tickets for the whole family but good for the whole year. Really a fascinating place. Worth a visit!

We were very surprised to find such a high quality museum in Cody, WY. The exhibits were very well done, the facility is new, clean and well appointed, the topic areas to see capture your attention for hours. We started with the gentleman outside by the chuck wagon and tee-pees. He was very knowledgeable telling us how chuck wagons worked while serving us sample staples from the time of beans and biscuits, which were delicious. Inside, there is 5 museums in one. We enjoyed the shooting gallery games in the gun exhibit section, skipped the art section although we heard there was a cool interactive art exhibit in the back, really liked the hologram display in the Buffalo Bill Cody section, and enjoyed the displays about the native american tribes of the era. Unfortunately, we only made it halfway through the natural history section before we had to leave but would have loved to spend more time in there. It was really cool and better than the Natural History Museum in Washington DC, albeit much smaller. This is definitely worth the stop even if you are not museum people like we aren't.

One of the best firearm exhibits in the entire world. Many things to see and is a great stop if you're in the area.

The finest museum I have ever been too, the museum was set up very well and the firearm section is so nice, it is out of this world. Plan a full day to see it all and plan two days if you really want to take it all in. Very clean and the staff was wonderful.

I visited this museum several years ago when I worked in Yellowstone. It had come up in conversation with tourists many times, and after I visited, I could see why. The exhibits are varied and thorough. My personal favorite was the wildlife exhibit. If you've got a day to spend in Cody, I'd recommend stopping in!

Great center for learning about the history of the area, great presentation of information. It was great to learn about raptor birds and see a demonstration.

An absolute must visit if you like museums. Plan 4 hours minimum to hit it all. All the museum wings are good. The displays are very informative and well put together. I've been a few times over the years and I like that there is something new eveytime when I really am just expecting to share it with a friend who has never been. Friendly staff.
