Stroll through history while viewing over a thousand of relic guns & other weapons from many different time periods and locations including “America’s War of Independence, The Gold Rush Era, The U.S. Civil War, The Old West & Indian Wars, World War I, The Roaring 20’s and World War II”. The Cody Dug Up Gun Museum is one of Cody, Wyoming’s newest attractions and a great look at history for the whole family. Open to the public in the spring of 2009. The museum is a proud sponsor of the Cody Gunfighter’s Show at the world famous Irma Hotel (just steps away from our museum!) We are members of the Cody Chamber of Commerce and enthusiastic supporters of Cody’s historical attractions. Open 9:am – 9:pm - 7 days a week from May through September *FALL HOURS: 9:am - 6:pm*

This is a tiny, but awesome old gun museum. The displays of the "dug up" rusted fascinating guns, swords, knives, etc range from Civil War stuff, to old west stuff, to military stuff. The guy who runs the museum is a delight. He's very friendly...More

If you are interested in guns and history it is a good place to visit. Wide span of fire arm history from a different perspective than the well preserved items you usually see in museums.

Definitely a need for a place like this! So much history that needs to be shown in regular conditions not pristine like at museums. Was amazed that so many shells were still in the weapons! Life was tough back then! Blessings on continuing your business....More

Amazing collection with descriptions for nearly every artifact. The curator really knows his stuff... he shared many interesting facts and stories related to guns, wars, historical figures, etc. If we had more time we would have stopped in again before heading out of town. The...More

There is no official cost of admission. The museum runs only on tips. So, totally worth going in. Then, if you like it, just leave a tip you think is fair. And, if you don't, just walk away. Where else do you get a better...More

So neat to see all these pieces of history, and to have an idea as to were they came from. A little piece of history all found in the dirt.
