This Cowboy Museum In The Heart Of Wyoming Will Take You Back In Time
Wyoming’s past is full of pioneer stories, of cowboys, of battle, and of triumph. Throughout most of Wyoming’s recent history, Cowboys and horses have played a huge role. In Sheridan, a famous saddler named Don King truly made his mark. King built his first saddle in 1946 – and King’s Saddlery has been part of Wyoming history ever since.
Today, you can visit an impressive western Museum tucked away in the famous tack store.
King's dancing bear greets you as you enter the room beyond the rope shop, where you'll find Don King's Old West Museum.
Gathered over several decades, this collection of western and native art, artifacts, relics, and more documents Wyoming's not so distant past.
You'll find cases of old western rifles and handguns. In many ways, they aren't much different than the guns you'll find in Wyoming today.
The ornate leatherwork displayed throughout the museum shows just how talented these sharpshooters were at their other crafts.
Cowboys weren't just gunslingers. The writings, artwork, and songbooks show a softer, human side of the Wild West.
Don't forget to take a peek in the authentic hearse - this is truly one of the most unique treasures in the museum.
King’s Saddlery and Museum is located at 184 N Main St, Sheridan, WY 82801, and they’re open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
