|It was a very interactive museum, as you can see by me riding on a 1859 McClellan Saddle. 🙂|
What I was a fan of was this cool smokescreen type video they had at the entrance to the Buffalo Bill section. You could walk right through it. The kids (and adults) were fascinated!

|This is the necklace I would have liked if I were a Plain Indian. Those are bear claws…how cool is that?!|

When our allotted time was up, we hit the restrooms before we got back on the road to Yellowstone. I tell you this because the above picture was taken right outside the restroom area. My son was tired of walking all over the museum, so he sat down on one of those wooden things, thinking that it was built into the floor. But it wasn’t…and it flipped over backward along with him! He wasn’t hurt, so we all got a good laugh out of it! 🙂
If you do make it to Cody, I would recommend the Sunset House Restaurant. They had excellent service and the food was very tasty. I had the Fandango Salad (pictured) with chicken, berries and baked pecans. Delish! You never know when you just pick a restaurant randomly, but we were all very pleased with this one.
Overall, it was a great day in Cody! Have you ever been?
