This rebuilt town of original building,s is only worth the entrance fee if you into the old west and how people not lived but managed to survive me? It was truly fascinating and so glad I took the time out to see it

Old Trail Town represents a mock-up of an old Wyoming town created from many frontier buildings dating back to the late 1800's. The buildings have been collected from all parts of the state and put together to form an interesting town to show how life was back then for today's visitors to enjoy. Some of the buildings are historically documented... More

Interesting collection of old cabins brought together at the Old Trail Town. You won't spend hours here, but it is definitely worth a visit

We really enjoyed going through all of the old structures. It was particularly interesting to be standing at the 3 "Hole in the Wall" hangouts. We were also interested in the grave sites- especially Jeremiah "Liver Eating" Johnson. Now that we are home we want to watch the movies about Jeremiah and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid again.

Much smaller than the bigger museum in town, this is a collection of preserved buildings that showcase artifacts in a somewhat natural setting. What that gives you is more context behind the items - you get to see how things might have been back in the day. It also makes for really excellent photo ops. My advice here would be... More

The clouds in the sky were a bit ominous and with the mountain and cemetery in the background, I got some really great photos. The bar makes a great background for a couples shot.

Very well-done restoration of old buildings and period pieces. The general store and saloon were the best.
