Enjoyed a short stop here on the way to Medora. Worth a stop. Cute village with lots of neat artifacts.

This village is a restored village from the early 1900s through 1970s. Lots of artifacts that bring back some memories from days gone by. It was an interesting way to spend about 45 minutes. There is the world's largest buffalo statue. Supposedly there is a large buffalo herd to see but we saw none. That was disappointing.

There is also the National Buffalo Museum at the same area.

This is a very nice collection of old west buildings, worth a quick stop on your way (and right next to the largest bison statue and the National Buffalo Museum). They have a nice playground and picnic area for lunch and kids to play on.

Or two teenage daughters thought this was a lot of fun. There's no admission cost, so it's worth stopping in for some cheesy pictures and some icecream in the general store. Just don't waste the money on the admission into the Buffalo Museum. It was almost $50 for a family of four and we spent about 15 minutes walking through really quick. Also, they have very inexpensive antiques for sale in one of the stores of the Frontier Village --- worth taking a look.

North Dakota has a shortish summer and hard winters,which is unimaginablewhen travelling in the summer. The restored buildings showing what an early Plains township liiked like is a pleasant way to discover the history of the Plains. We particularly enjoyed the Railway, World's Biggest Buffalo and the National Buffalo Museum. A shake at the General Store was served by a a rather surly woman and drunk outside in the sunshine. This is not a mesmerising destination but is a 7/10 for me because of the variety here.Don't forget to leave donations for the local historical society to carry on their good work.
