We wanted to visit the Cowgirls of the West Museum while in Cheyenne, but discovered when we got there that is it closed until May 2017. Disappointing!

This was well located and easy to walk to in the downtown area. Despite arriving after closing time, we were able to partake of the great window displays.

It wasn't our favorite museum stop in Cheyenne but was interesting as a woman to see how they helped to shape the wild west. There's lots of signs with info on them so my 12 year old got bored quickly.

Cowgirls Museum is great. So much to read about so many interesting women. Some you know, many you don't. The history of women who rode broncos and bulls in the early 20th century is especially interesting. You will get lost in the long video too.

Showing friends around downtown Cheyenne we stopped in to see this museum about the importance of cowgirls and how they broke into the wild west. Watch the video in the back of the museum first. Then check out the rest of the museum.
