Between 1917 and 2017, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West grew alongside its local and regional communities in a changing America and a changing world. The passage of one hundred years allows us to look at the humble origins and impressive presence of the Center of the West on a larger scale.
The Center and its mission “to inspire, educate, and engage global audiences through an authentic experience with the American West” helped shape the identity of the American West through art, science, culture, and history to connect to a place and spirit found nowhere else on earth.
Cody to the World! opens in the Center of the West’s Special Exhibitions Gallery on June 2, 2017, and runs through January 31, 2018. In addition to the special exhibition, each of our five museums will share a few additional pieces related to our Centennial.
