The deserted own of Bannack is a cool place to visit. It is a state park and there is an entrance fee. But they go by the license plate on your car. Montana tags get you in free. Out of state tags mean you pay. I would say it is worth the fee if you have to pay. You can... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our self-guided tour of this old western town with the help of our tour book--which can be purchased for $2 at the visitor center. Without the tour book, the tour would be pointless, as there are no informational signs in the park. The book gives you all the information you need about each point... More

We enjoyed the walk thru town and the educational information we got. The houses were neat to walk thru and the town was fun. The staff working there was good to talk to about stuff there.

Great place, we arrived late and effectively had the whole place to ourselves until dusk. during October the building and town were bathed in golden setting sun light, planning on returning again

Bannack is a buried treasure. If I was a ghost, I would want to live in the old hotel in Bannack. They have great tours, books, and they have preserved it historically. There are numerous buildings that are open so you can wander among them (and the spirits). Something different happens every weekend, so check out their website.

I enjoyed seeing the care going into preserving this old town and it's history. Enjoyed hearing the stories about the town from the folks still trying to preserve it. The piano player is talented and very friendly and knowledgable. Very enjoyable to visit with.

Great ghost town! You are able to go into most of the buildings. The staff person was great and told us the history of the town. We wished the little gift shop was open!

Although closed for winter, we were still able to tour town with the aid of a $2 guidebook. $5 park entrance fee. Each building is numbered to match up in guidebook. Fascinating and informative. Well-maintained. To get a feel for the times, you need to read Mr. plummer's story, written on the wall of the barbershop(?)! Well worth entrance fee;... More
