Much more than we expected. Lots of interesting displays. Many things we did not expect. Graves of famous people, actual artifacts that were discovered nearby. A great history lesson.

This is a very good collection of wooden buildings and wagons, plus a collection of Indian artifacts. It was well worth the $8 admission. It's too bad they don't sell coffee or snacks, but we did find food at the nearby Buffalo Bill Center of the West (which is also great).

Doesn't take long to look round all the reconstructed historic buildings but they were really interesting and well presented. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would recommend anyone in Cody taking the time to visit.

This looks like a Hollywood movie set, but it's not. It has authentic cabins that were once inhabited by Western heroes and outlaws including Jeremiah Johnson, Butch Cassidy & Sundance, and other pioneers and trappers. Furnishings are authentic to the time period and also covered wagons and other tools and implements and wares are showcased.

I would not waste my time. This is set right near the Cody Nite Rodeo. It's just kind of in the middle of town. I thought it would be in a different location than it was. It was very boring and not worth my time/money.

Shows the way of life of the early settlers in the west and some of the more infamous people as well. Nicely presented reconstructed buildings with interiors furnished as they were in the nineteenth century. A worthwhile stop.

Really enjoyed our 'trip back in time'. It was neat to see how people lived and Old Trail Town is a true testament to the lifestyle back then. I appreciated how you weren't left guessing as to what things were, everything had a plaque from the buildings to the items inside of them. The staff was friendly & it was... More

I like this better than going to some giant museum. Give it an hour and you can probably skip all the other "Bill" attractions (although I have to admit, this was the only one we visited). A bunch of very old reconstructed cabins with authentic 1800s decor/furnishings. Serving from the "Salon" and a "player-piano" would've been a really nice touch,... More

This town is a collection of genuine old Wild West buildings that line a "Main Street" complete with wooden sidewalks. Each building has an information plaque describing it. it gives an insight in to how the "cowboys" lived back in history. Beware-the Rest Rooms are very basic porta -loos. We spent 90 minutes walking around and found it quite interesting.... More

Lots of information about local residents and a good walk-in inspection of homes that were along the trail in the Cody and surrounding areas. Good for the kids and the adults. A "roping" center for the visitors completes the visit...try it...it's quite a bit harder than you think!
