Very expensive crap. Even if you wanted a little memento if would cost you. We looked around and then left.

There are many artifacts and historical items in this store. There are many nick knacks to purchase. It was interesting to walk around and see the various items. There is a motorized miniature diorama that's really quite good. worth spending an hour there.

I thought your trading post was great. I’ve seen these same types of things since I was a little kid when my parents took me on vacations, although mostly through the southwest United States. Some of the display items are products of a bygone era,...More

I'm glad we took you "back in time"! Good idea on an animated train for Buffalo Bill's Wild West in Miniature. Something to think about!

No reason not to stop. It is right at the intersection of 80/83. Multiple fast food, gas stations, hotels, and restaurants in immediate area. The shop part is standard tourist fare but the Buffalo Bill display in the back is worth a few minutes of...More

I'm glad you enjoyed Buffalo Bill's Wild West in Miniature! It's truly incredible to think it took 12 years to complete!

A fun place to buy all your Nebraska and western gifts. They have just about everything you need on your wish list. Don't forget to stop by the stockyard out back to see a log cabin, teepee, and giant Native American!

Fun and free (Yes, most would call it a tourist trap) But it's FREE and very interesting. Kids will enjoy. And yes, the kids in us parents will too! Just like Wall's Drug Store on Interstate 90 in South Dakota, this is a must stop,...More

stopped here on a cross country trip. the fort design alone is enough to make it worth a stop. add in its buffalo statue and a game of checkers and it's a must

Stopped there to see. There was a large variety of items to buy and an outside area to walk with a Teepee. Inside is a small scale model of the show. It moves around on a schedule. Great for the kids and interesting for the...More

Want to see a two-headed calf? How about Wild West clothing or Nebbraska food? It’s all here in this store where you can wander for an hour or more. I loved the old candy section and they even had Nesbitt’s Orange soda!
