This has lots of potential but it is not yet met. I think it would benefit from staff in the site (not just in the entrance) and more information on the buildings. It is worth a visit but I left feeling I wish I had learnt more.

The town is set up the way Wild Bill Cody wanted Cody, Wy to be set up. Had cabins, school, barns and black smith shop from all over the area. They were moved and rebuilt on the site. The most interesting fact was that they brought the body of Jeremiah Johnson back to be reburied there.

My husband and I enjoy visiting Old Western Ghost Towns. This is an interesting place to stop if you're looking for something to do. Oh, if the walls could talk......! Be sure to check out the gravesites as well and "Liver-eating" Johnston (and a movie was made about him with Robert Redford playing him, although he was called Johnson in... More

this inexpensive walk down history lane was fun and informative. it felt like you were really walking through an old western town. and to think you were standing on the actual planks of some of the old wests best/worse was neat. I especially liked the old hearse. had never seen one from that period. I definitely recommend you visit this... More

This is on the original site of Cody town and although not all the buildings were there originally the ones that have been brought here from elsewhere are still originals. Whilst walking down the street you get the feel of what it must have been like in its heyday. It is like stepping back in time. Great.

We had some time to kill before our dimmer reservation and stoped. We are glad we did. It was a great collection of old west stuff.

Walking down the street you can imagine the old wild west. Each house / shack tells a story and the insides are very authentic. There is a lot of history you can read about each of the buildings and the re-sited graves are a must to visit to read the history of the past.

Easy boardwalk access to the old buildings and artifacts. Some well preserved others being maintained. Some interesting displays and a short walk to the relocated burial sites of famous western characters.
