CODY, Wyo. (AP) — The Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody has been renamed to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

The name change was approved recently by the center's board of trustees.

The center consists of five museums and a research library that include exhibits on Yellowstone National Park, Western art, Plains Indians, firearms and William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody.

While the name change is effective immediately, it will be phased in over the coming months.
