The Buffalo Bill Center of the West encompasses a research library and five museums: the Buffalo Bill Museum; the Whitney Western Art Museum; the Cody Firearms Museum; the Draper Natural History Museum; and the Plains Indian Museum. First imagined by William “Buffalo Bill” Cody himself, the Center has celebrated the American’s West’s unique and enduring culture for nearly a century. The NEH has supported the Center, providing funding to help it reach the public through art, science, culture, and history. In addition to helping the Center assess and preserve its historically-valuable collection, the NEH has funded the creation of permanent and travelling exhibitions that bring Western culture to the American public. These include permanent exhibitions at the Buffalo Bill Museum on the American legend’s life. Most recently, the NEH funded the development of the Cody Archive, which makes Cody’s writing and papers available to the public online.
