From our 2018 Visit (only 1 out of 10 stars, do not recommend)
Very few guns at the Cody Museum
They are not kidding when they say the guns are not on display. Only a very few guns are out, and the descriptions are tiny.
There is a big TV screen, with tiny gun pictures, if you click on them, they open up.. its as though you are online, at home.. only you are at the museum, you drove many hundreds of miles to visit
Do not visit until the new museum is built
Many (most) of the guns around the rest of the museum have also been brought to the new exhibits which are off limits to visitors
