I made sure to stop here on my trip home from Colorado! I had no idea Frontier days was going on at the same time. Honestly, I came just to see the Lane Frost Statue. Thank you to the really nice security guard who let me park and take quick pictures before I went on my way.
I have never been to Cheyenne Frontier Days, but I really enjoyed learning about it and watching the short film about this great event! It is a nice museum with some great history! I especially liked Ronnie Dunn’s section!!! Beautiful work. They have a LOT of carriages that are fun to read about. Now I must attend the event!
