Great walk through time...

If you like old west history, this is a must see. Inexpensive and self guided, but the staff that was on hand were very informative and friendly.

A brilliant way to spend a couple of hours in Cody. It's a great little wood cabin town giving insight into how settlers really lived, all genuine cabins relocated to one place. Excellent value for money.

Was very intriguing to see all the old buildings and how they built log cabins and the like years ago. Some great local history with the cabins and artifacts inside. Worth the time on your self guided tour. A lot of variety.

Old log cabins and history were worth the time. Extremely friendly woman at the office. Wish I could remember her name. She was a delight!

An incredible collection of buildings and artifacts from a bygone era. I was impressed by the amount of furnishings, clothing, equipment that was gathered here. Set up very nicely. Gives a good idea of life in those days, Very convenient right next to Cody Cowboy village where we were staying.

This outdoor museum had 26 original cabins filled with history. All these cabins came from within 150 miles of Cody. There is a brochure, as well as signs on each cabin explaining the history and original location of that cabin. There are also several old wagons and carts between the two rows of buildings. Great place to visit for people... More

This is a large collection of buildings from the early 1800's. The antique furnishings,some weapons,and numerous old wagons are displayed. Photographs and original memorabilia add to the experience.

Spent an hour here. Received a map with explanation at entrance. Very reasonable entrance fee. Amazing to see real school building and Butch Cassidy's Hole in the Wall. Kids loved playing with the lasso at the end of the tour.

It was cool to see authentic historical structures. When we entered we were given an explanation of the buildings and a map. Your tour is self-guided with signs explaining the significance of each building. A lot of the structures were locked and after viewing a few of them they started to look the same. We spent about an hour there... More
