Part of the museum complex in Cody and well worth spending time there,especially as the ticket price is for all the museums.

The museum of the Plains Indian is part of the center. It is remarkably done and very informative about the life of Native Americans in the 18th century.

A well laid out series of exhibits shows part of the history of the Plains nations. Fascinating stories along with period items made this an enjoyable place to visit.

This museum has some excellent Plains Indian artifacts. I especially liked the headdresses and other clothing. The displays are well done and gives some insight to the life on the plains.

Great museum. Rivals Smithsonian. A lot of lessons to be learned here. Tour it after the WHITNEY. I have been many times and I learn a little more each time.

This is one of the 5 museums in the Buffalo Bill Centre. The displays are huge, it isn't a collection of artifacts but a history of the Plains Indians. I found it hard to not be affected by the displays. They brought the real Indian...More

The museum is inside the Buffalo Bill Center and worth the visit. It cost nothing extra and has plenty of information about the plains indians and their history. Well worth the time to tour.

Great job by this museum of neither falsely glorifying or denigrating either side, while telling historically and culturally accurate stories of the Plains culture and the impact white expansion had. This is an experience both educational and enjoyable.
