  • What a pleasant finding on the way up the scenic mountain road. Buffalo Bill's grave site is a reminder to us of the long forgotten story of our country's past. Along side the grave items is a museum ...  more »
  • Nice course. Museum very informative and entertaining. The tomb's not to be missed. You can find many refreshments in the Café. The tour takes ca 1 h price for Museum very cheap. Absolute recommendation for the Denver stay.

  • Awesome. Loved all the historical artifacts. Really cool of you like western history. Oh heck it's really cool even if you don't like western history. If you ever played cowboys and Indians check it out
  • What an experience. Loved everyone there, especially Cloud and Whisper. The chili is the best, ever
  • The museum was fantastic. Just a quick stroll from the museum to the final resting place of Buffalo Bill.
  • This place was hokey but fun. We didn't plan on visiting but it was on a tour we were on and we are glad we did. Lots of old west Americana and the location has really beautiful views. Learned alot about the man (Buffalo bill) that we knew very little about prior to this. Good place to take kids for sure.
  • Resting place of Buffalo Bill atop Lookout Mountain. Great views can be had here, but it was foggy with zero visibility during our trip. The museum charges an entrance fee but the store and fudge/snack shop along with the gravesite and rest of the grounds are free to visit. Large parking lot can accommodate buses and other large vehicles.
