The Cody Firearms Museum has spent many months undergoing a complete renovation and rebuilding, and is not back fully open to the public. The new layout has not just improved visibility and put the guns in better display context, but it has actually increased the number of guns on display. When I last filmed at Cody, most of the really interesting unusual stuff was back in the vaults – but during filming this past week we had to take a remarkable number of guns out of displays to film. This is a great improvement – the Cody museum was always good, but this new design has made it the best firearms museum in the United States, in my opinion.
Visiting? The CFM is part of the 5-museum complex that is the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in beautiful Cody, Wyoming.
