HOLD ON==yes, this was sold to a very fine museum collector in California (he didnt want to just let it go to anyone or close it down) The will spend the year(?) slowly packing it up. I dont know what's left when you come by, but there was such a mind-boggling collection that even if you saw 1/5 of it,... More

While basically looks like a gift shop, in the back for a small charge there are extensive miniature-figure dioramas of many western topics, plus a first-class set of display cases of native Indian clothing and articles. On west edge of town, south side.

We went thinking the model trains would be running. Instead it is in the middle of construction. Kind of a let down.

The Miniature Village and Museum are sold out - literally - they have been moved to California!! When I asked the owner why they still have their advertising out, he just told me that it still gets foot traffic into his store. Our son was heartbroken that we didn't get to see the much touted miniature village, and frankly so... More

There are two entries in Trip Advisor for the same attraction. This is not worth the stop in 2014 because its under construction.

This is a nice, family operated museum. The huge area in the midle of the room contains all the miniature figures. All sorts of history is displayed here. There is a brochure they give you so you know what you are looking at with the miniatures. The display cases along the walls show a variety of antiques. There is a... More

what a collection of Indian memorabilia and display. Especially enjoyed the history of the west by era between white man & Indian.Think kids would really enjoy the miniature displays and trains.

Family own and operated and a must see. Met the owners who have worked most of their lives building the miniatures. A great way to see the history of WY. Also loved the gift shop as most items I was interested in were well priced. Make sure to stop by!
