July 1, 2019

CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming museum devoted to guns is reopening after a major renovation.

Admission to the Cody Firearms Museum will be free Saturday night following the renovation, which cost $12 million.

The Billings Gazette reports a large part of a new addition at the museum is dedicated to firearm education and safety. Visitors can practice on four simulators, one each for a handgun, M2 machine gun, long-range rifle and shotgun.

The museum also has displays on rifling, gun barrel design and ballistics, where visitors can try to line up rifling marks with the images of fired bullets like a ballistics expert.

Other displays cover the evolution of firearms and military history.
