BBCW Opens Its Doors for Free Sunday
Written by Andrew-Rossi on June 1, 2017
2017 marks 100 years of honoring the legacy of this community’s namesake, William F. Cody.
Buffalo Bill may have died 100 years ago, but his legacy continued through the work of the Buffalo Bill Memorial Association, from which evolved the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. In celebration of its Centennial, the Center is offering free admission for Wyoming and Montana residents all day this Sunday, June 4.
Bruce Sauers, Director of Revenue and Enterprise for the Center, says the museum is showing appreciation to its supporters from around the region.
The Buffalo Bill Memorial Association, the Center’s parent organization, formed on March 1, 1917, just a few weeks after Bill Cody’s death on January 10. Its mission was to dedicate itself to keeping alive the memory of the Great American, Scout, and Showman, and to celebrate the West he loved.
The Center is open daily from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. For free admission on June 4, visitors just need to present valid photo identification to admit themselves, their spouses, and immediate family.
