Fantastic overlook of the Denver metro area. Museum has something for everyone. Gift shop is so full of stuff you'll never need.

We arrived too late to visit the museum but there was plenty to see outside on the grounds. Spectacular view of the valley. It is a fitting spot for the American legend buffalo bill to be laid to rest.

If you can navigate the hilly twisting roads high above city of Golden you will find Buffalo Bill's grave and museum. I found the museum a bit touristy and dull but still a interesting way to spend some time and enjoy the beautiful scenery

Trip Advisor does not allow me to post a link but if you search "Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave Golden Colorado" you will find a nice website with all the info you need on their " plan your trip" page.
