What makes this museum so amazing and memorable are the old original building structures (moved from sites in Wyoming) and the artifacts contained in most of them. Most interesting to me were animal skulls with bullet holes shot in the middle of the head and...More

This place is quite incredible, it has twenty five old and in most cases famous buildings that have been transported from different areas to make up this exhibition. All of which date back to the late 1800’s to early 1900’s with the decorations to go...More

Small town of historic buildings, disassembled and reassembled in Cody WY. An old saloon, houses where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid out, before their robberies. Interesting information on the several graves on site. Only a small fee to get in, but worth it.

Don’t pass Cody without visiting the old trail town. All the cabins are original and perfectly preserved you can easily imagine the western life just by seeing the town. So bad that some cabins were closed (certainly for maintenance) because you never want to stop...More

Real log cabin type buildings brought from other areas of Wyoming - some with interesting history attached - such as the Hole in the Wall Gang Saloon - which were brought in to reconstruct how Cody looked in the Old West. You can go inside...More

We loved this different then usual museum experience. Very interesting relocation of several historical old buildings reconstructed in an organized fashion to show what it was like to live in the 1800's. The buildings are full of great items of the era, very well researched....More

This is well worth a visit to see how people used to live in the old Wild West. Some elements are really well preserved and so interesting.

The original cabins and artifacts and very interesting. The place was well worth the admission charge. There were even graves of old mountain men.

I have been the Old Trail Town dozens of times over several decades, and it is still good. It is by no means a tourist trap, but a museum of local history and the old west. I wish they had kept up with the work...More

Wow, this is a trip back in time. You can really get a good taste of the old west in a visit here. I think a few more people dressed in period clothing would be great.

You can go into a lot of the cabins and the old saloon. Some cabins were roped off/doors locked. But, I don’t remember being disappointed by that as there are plenty that are open for you to explore.

I did not see any dogs walking around in the old town. Once again I agree a phone call would probably answer your question. Please don't miss this spot to visit. Hopefully you will find somewhere your puppy dog can stay. We... More

No, there is a fee, but you pay inside the old western store (first building). There is no official wrist band or entrance. I think it was $8 each, but I'm not positive.
