It does not cost much to go here...there is even a senior discount! All buildings were taken from somewhere else and put up again here to show you what an old western town was like long ago. One building is like a museum and has some very interesting displays in it. One building is a bar with bullet holes in... More

Little hidden gems all over this restored "Western" town. The buildings have been collected from all over Wyoming. Great little gift shop, with unusual items. Take the walking tour around the original site of the town of Cody. The buildings are very interesting and don't forget to look around at the wagons and behind and through the buildings. Great photo... More

We enjoyed looking around the old time; one of the staff (owner ?) had a lasso rope, who spend quality time with my boys showing them how to lasso - thankfully not each other.. Well worth the visit

Definitely more than meets the eye. Beautifully maintained and preserved. People really care about history. A photographer's paradise. Go early to keep too many people out of your shots. Nice artifact collection to boot!

You must stop and tour this town! It is awesome! To walk where Butch Cassidy did and see all the bullet holes in the saloon, etc... Great to see!

This IS the Wild West! All the history of not only Cody but the surrounding areas can really be summed up here at the Trail Town Museum, come to see how the wild west really was!

If you are a history buff you won't want to miss Cody's Old Trail Town! The buildings were taken apart, moved from their original locations and then reconstructed here...it is a real reminder of the tough western life! About 20 buildings to see. The cemetery has graves with the most famous being Jeremiah Johnson. Robert Redford who played Jeremiah in... More

Old Trail Town should not be missed when you are in Cody or on the way to Yellowstone National Park. It just oozes history from the buildings to the grave sites of some of the legendary characters of the Old West. There is nothing artificial or staged here - just the genuine article.

We took a group of 20 and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. It gives you a true feel of the real west, as it was lived by the pioneers and early residents. The collections are well displayed and fascinating. The staff is helpful and friendly. We would go again!
