About Us

At the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, find out all about Yellowstone National Park, the American West, and everything in between.

After all, we’re just 50 miles from the Park’s east gate, and our backyard is the Northern Rockies and Plains, long recognized for its history and culture. Thankfully, our five museums weave it all into a tapestry we call the American West. Indeed, a visit here will have you celebrating the Spirit of the American West long before you reach the Park entrance.

Whether you and your family are heading to Yellowstone, or leaving the Park behind, you’ll find that exploring life in the West with us couldn’t be more fascinating or more downright fun!
