Winchester Wax Museum- Buffalo Bill

Buffalo Bill's Wild West
Show . . . The Programs
read "Foes in '76 and
Friends in '85", after Sitting
Bull agreed to join the show
because he wanted to see
Annie Oakley shoot every
day. The Winchester was
their favorite gun.

The Wax Museum at the Winchester mystery House is long gone, and finding information on it is somewhat of a chore. I never knew they ever had a wax museum on their grounds. Likely, it was around during the 60's and 70's. Unlike the Hollywood Wax Museum, or Madame Tussaud's, which focus mainly on celebrities, the Winchester Wax Museum focused solely on history, the history of the Winchester riffle to precise, and the famous people in history who used it. So here are Buffalo Bill Cody, Annie Oakley, and Sitting Bull. They have their trusty Winchester in their hands, and are ready to put on the show.

Another blog, Mystery House, has some pictures of what happened to figures when the Wax Museum closed (Although I disagree with its opinion of the wax museum). See them here, and here.
