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.

A good family experience for a family. Kids would enjoy seeing what things looked like back in the Wild West. Enjoyed the grave sites and the history of those people.

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.

We had been told about this small museum before we left the UK and delighted with it. Very interesting guy on the front desk, he is an author of western novels. Captures the atmosphere.

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.
