If Rodeo is your thing - then you've found a place that you really should visit. Great art, posters and history of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. The coaches, carriages and other 'horsey' gear is amazing and really high quality. This is worth the look and the price of admission.

Went here as part of a three museum pass we bought at the Cheyenne depot. Lots of old wagons and the history of the local frontier day events in the city. Brought to life what a cowboy does, the rodeo, and just simply a lot of history and culture in one place that us folks from back east don't really... More

Really enjoyed the Museum. The price was right and the displays were well done. Easy access to all floors and very unique options to view and experience.

Located on the grounds where the annual Frontier Days takes place, from the outside, this museum looks small. However, do not let first looks fool you. There is a lot to see and read! While much space is devoted to the former stars of the rodeo circuit, as you enter the museum, one of the first displays highlights the star... More

We visited the Frontiwr Museum hoping to learn a bit more about Cheyenne and how it began. This place was a wealth of information. They had wonderful items on display and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. They were very pleasant to talk to. We spent about an hour and a half just looking around. It was all in...

I wanted to get a sense of the history of the sport of rodeo, so we stopped here to see the CFD hall of fame and museum. I know that there is work being done on the exhibits, but the experience right now is not worth the price of admission. I was disappointed by the lack of information about the... More

Visited on April 17/17 without great expectations, I think you could say. We were delightfully surprised, from the friendly gentleman at the front desk (he obviously loved the museum) to the exhibits themselves. All kinds of carriages, wagons on display plus other odds and ends. For us though, the highlight was undoubtedly the film on the rodeo riders and the... More

Stopped at the suggestion of friends to get the feel of "old" Cheyenne. Enjoyed my wondering through the museum and then lots of help in the gift shop to find some unique shirts for grand children

Heavy emphasis on coaches of all kinds. I was intrigued to see how much of the coach structure carried over to the first cars. Take the time to watch the short film in the small theater. The heritage of Frontier Days comes alive and the scenes of the bull riding will stay with you long after the film ends. Probably... More
