William F. Cody's museum is a tribute to the man himself, as well as the Old West in general.. In Short Buffalo Bill worked as a soldier, buffalo hunter and showman. His Wild West Show spread the gospel of the West, and when he died in 1917, thousands of people lined the streets of Denver for his funeral procession. The museum displays original photographs, weapons and beaded costumes. His grave site is simple, with his wife beside him, but it commands a spectacular view of Denver from Lookout Mountain. Youngsters will enjoy the Kids' Cowboy Corral.
