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!

I'm so glad my dad suggested this place as a site to see when we were visiting Cody. It originally wasn't on our agenda and I'm very glad we stopped in. The hours are great. They were open until 7 pm when we visited. The museum is free, though they accept donations. The items inside are part of a personal... More

This museum is free. It is the owners lifetime collection of Indian and cowboy artifacts. He also has a miniature diorama. They only ask you if you want to leave a donation of any size. It was a very impressive collection.
