This splendid engraved and inlaid firearm is a Blunderbuss, a name derived from a rough translation of the Dutch/Germanic words donner for “thunder” and busche for “gun.” The resultant “thunder gun” description is quite appropriate for the stunningly loud…

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.

This Museum is the most incredible place to visit. We spent an entire day exploring it and barely scratched the surface seeing it. My son and myself really enjoyed the Gun Museum. Could spend days down there looking at them all. Buffalo Bill Cody sure was one of the greatest showmen of his time. Amazing tribute to his life. We plan to visit it again next time we are in Cody.

This museum is first rate and well worth the time spent. We returned the following morning to continue fresh as there is so much to see. The Whitney Gallery of art is one of the best (If not THE best) collections of western art anywhere. The other museums are also amazing in information and design. The exhibits are displayed very well and there are plenty of interactive exhibits...many of them are walk throughs. There are activity centers for children. My latest visit was the third of my lifetime and I am more impressed now than before.....A very worthwhile place.

Having grown up in Cody, I have visited the museum numerous times and have seen first hand some of its evolution. Every year, a field trip to the museum was mandatory. There are basically five museums under one roof. I don't remember all of their names, but there is an art gallery, western history museum, an incredible firearms museum, the Plains Indian museum, and the Draper museum of natural history. Growing up, the Plains Indian museum was always my favorite, but the new Draper museum has supplanted it. The Draper is the best natural history museum I know of. The layout is brilliant and the interactive displays give you an excellent lesson on the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, of which Cody is one part. If you are in Cody, you should plan on a day to spend at this first rate facility.
