A new exhibition exploring the myths and realities of the Wild West.

Native American and Western artefacts are on display from Calderdale Museums, Leeds City Museums and various private collections, alongside souvenirs from the world famous 'Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show', which visited Halifax on the 8th October 1903. 

January 2017 sees the 100th anniversary of Buffalo Bill's death. Born William F. Cody, the legendary 'Buffalo Bill' almost single-handedly created the image of the ‘Wild West’, which endures to this day- with cowboys and Indians, covered wagons and stagecoaches.
