We visited on our way to the Rodeo stadium which is a few hundred yards away and we are glad we stopped here, there’s lots to see and some really historic buildings and exhibits there too. Worth the modest entrance fee.

Old town trail will not distract you for long, however saying that we found it very interesting and worth a look if you are in the area. Allow around an hour or so.

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.

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.
