Buffalo Bill’s Grave & Museum

Buffalo Bill’s Grave & Museum Located on top of Lookout Mountain with spectacular views of both the snowcapped Rocky Mountains and the high plains of Denver, this is the final resting spot of the famous showman and frontier scout, Buffalo Bill Cody.

A museum provides a well-rounded look at his exciting life, from Pony Express rider and buffalo hunter to the world’s greatest showman, who often performed before the crowned heads of Europe.
There are posters from his shows and mementos from his life including guns, costumes and historic photographs.

The museum is best approached from the Lariat Trail from Hwy. 6 in Golden. This is a winding scenic highway with a dozen pull-offs offering panoramic views of the mountains and plains.

Optional Trip:
Denver maintains a buffalo herd of 40 head at a scenic spot on I-70 (Exit 250) about 14 miles west of the city. The buffalo are direct descendants of the last wild buffalo herd left in America. It is about 15 minutes from here to Buffalo Bill’s Grave.

Top of Lookout Mountain, Exit 256 from I-70, Golden, CO 80401
