This won't take you more than an hour or two to see, and it's definitely worth the time and the admission cost. You can walk right into the saloon where the "Hole in the Wall Gang" hung out before they robbed all those banks! So many interesting buildings and pieces of memorabilia, and you can really feel the dedication of... More

It really wasn't what I thought it would be. Most, if not all, the buildings had been moved from other areas. The artifacts were cool to look at. A lot of the artifacts I had used to play with at my grandparents' house as a kid.

A must see if your going through or staying over in Cody, Wyoming. The attraction depicts an old 18th century western town complete with historical facts and artifacts. There is a book store upon entering the attraction with many nice books to purchase. Also check out the Buffalo Bill museum, a must see.

Great old town - very realistic and not "prettied" up for tourists. You can almost imagine the way life was in the Old West!

I thought this might be a little a little touristy, but after seeing the Old Trail town you really should spend some time here. the building are authentically re-created and you REALLY get an appreciation of the 1800's. Having a background in architecture I could appreciate this setting. The displays each contain artifacts of the time and how they lived.... More

A simple but interesting collection of buildings taken from various places around the country and made into a street. You'll find a visit to be much more rewarding than the flashy museum a few kilometres down the road. There are even a few graves at the end of the street, Jerimiah Johnson being the most famous. It's only eight dollars... More

Brings together buildings from Wyoming's historical past and shows what nineteenth century living was like.

I was disappointed to find out they moved all these buildings to a site of no real significance. The buildings are interesting but each is identified by a sign with 1-2 sentences at most. The artifacts within are similarly devoid of historic description which is sad as they have some fascinating objects (furniture, buggies/wagons, cowboy implements. There is one bldg... More
