Just back from visiting Yellowstone. We checked out the Western Heritage Museum in Cody, Wyoming - simply excellent. It's actually five museums - native peoples, western art, Buffalo Bill western stuff, natural history, and guns. If you ever get out that way I would highly recommend it.

The art wing has all the usual Remington, Russel, Wyeth, and Bierstadt stuff, but here's their take on modern art:


They have two or three guns in their collection:

If you get out there, the Wyoming Steak and Chop restaurant in Cody has the best looking wait staff I've ever seen. Too young for me, but you would enjoy the, er, ambience.

Cody isn't that big - I probably could have asked at a gas station and they would have known him. A nice town in a nice state.

Very Happy
Thanks for sharing. Really interesting specimens.
I wonder what some of those would cost if produced today? Lots of $$$$ !
