Don't let our highway construction deter you! Try one of our other entrances: main, south, RV lot, & north (across from hospital).

In case you missed it -say what??? Do not approach wild animals in the Park! Wild is the operative word here!
Animals, they’re not just like us. A father and son arrived at Lamar Buffalo Ranch in Wyoming on Monday, with a bison calf in the back of their SUV. They believed that the bison was cold and in danger, so they decided to kidnap the animal and bring it to a park ranger. SEE ALSO: Bison named 'Sparky

So, what did Brandon have in the box? Our newest raptor resident, a bald eagle! Isn't she beautiful?

Yellowstone bison are the subject of our June 2 Lunchtime Expedition! It's a story of melting ice, migration, co-existing with geothermal activity, and modern changes. http://ow.ly/Rb20300wExi

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gun fight in the middle of the street. This is one of the thing we saw in Cody, WY. We stopped here on our trip to Yellowstone. It is near the East Gate of Yellowstone National Park. It is named after William Frederick Cody, known as Buffalo Bill. Cody, which calls itself the "Rodeo Capital of the World". It is also host to the Cody Stampede Rodeo, one of the largest rodeos in the nation.
