Buffalo Bill Center of the West
Here at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, we’re celebrating the Spirit of the American West!
It took special people to settle the American West–people of vision and courage with strong values and beliefs. This uniquely American story starts with the land and its first peoples, and extends through the centuries to the present day—western experiences that refine the spirit of our nation.
Since 1917, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West has been committed to the greatness and growth of the American West—keeping those western experiences alive for today’s visitors and those in the future. Just as William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody “took the West to the world,” we’ve taken on the challenge of bringing the West to you.
The mission of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West: Through our ideas, collections, and programs, we educate and entertain worldwide audiences about the past, present, and future of the American West.
