Fun to walk back in time

There may be more old wagons on the streets here than anywhere in the west and the houses on display evoke the spirit of what is was like. Worthwhile visit.

The day we visited about half the buildings were closed. What we were able to view was enjoyable just seemed a little pricy without access to all that was there. Staff did not present with the typical helpful / happy nature we have been used to in Wyoming. I would not recommend to a friend.

This was OK set up like the main street of an old cowboy town. But I didn't think it was special. We have visited better ones.

Interesting place to visiit and fair price. You can look in some cabins and walk in to others, seeing all the old artefacts . Gives a taste of the old West.

We thoroughly enjoyed browsing these old western buildings and reading about the history behind them. You can almost see Clint Eastwood come around the corner with a six-shooter. Definitely a unique way to spend an hour or so and affordable at $9 a person.

This is another example of the trouble some will go to to assemble a collection of old buildings, put them together and create an old town. It feels like stepping back in time. All the houses have provenance, from that of Buffalo Bill's famous scout to the saloon frequented by the Hole in the Wall Gang.

Wonderful old buildings from the days of the wild west, a saloon, cabins, etc, go and spend an hour looking at this before the rodeo, it's just next door. Very atmospheric.

Lots of original buildings, (relocated to here), then arranged in a town setting. Many are similar but there are some interesting stories to read about. Self-guided and probably should allow 45-60 minutes. Not sure it was worth $9 a person unless this sort of thing is new to you. No surprises in the saloon, barn, blacksmith shop, etc. Probably not...

We enjoyed visiting Old Trail Town and learning about the history of the cabins, and some of the famous former residence. This is a tribute to the old West. Our teens enjoyed it as much as we did.

I chose to leave my older teenage children at the hotel and do this on my own. I don't think they would have been interested, but I certainly was, having been brought up on John Wayne films and cowboys and Indians films. Highlights for me were the wagons, the Indian clothing (with amazing glass beading) and the saloon door with... More
