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

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!

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.

If you go to the Old Trail town, then you should visit the miniature village just across the road. Entrance is by donation, so price is up to you. Interesting to look at the miniature display and press buttons to move the trains or listen to the commentary. Very interesting stories from the old West

Miniature village must have taken years to assemble and create with story telling audios. Wonderful private collection of the old west and fascinating historical artifacts. Very personable owners who took time to provide detailed explanations.

This museum is a person's life long collection and dioramas of the west. Very interesting and unique collection of artifacts. Plan on spending at least an hour viewing all of the displays. Admission is free, donations only collected
