The Durham Museum, 801 S. 10th Street, Omaha, NE 68108

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West debuted in Omaha, Nebraska in 1883. The show introduced many western performers and personalities, as well as a romanticized version of the Old West, to a wide domestic audience and eventually exported that version of American culture around the world. This exhibition will explore the colorful and varied history of the Wild West Show, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, and some of the Wild West performers, like Annie Oakley.

Developed in partnership with the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, exhibited artifacts and photos will include loans from local, regional and national partners like the Autry Museum, Wyoming State Museum, the Stuhr Museum, Nebraska State Historical Society, Douglas County Historical Society, Kent State University, the Buffalo Bill Grave Site, History Colorado and the Council Bluffs Public Library.
