This was a great unexpected stop one afternoon.
It was a lot of fun and very well made. There is so much history in the area and the surrounding countryside.
It is a great place for the whole family to learn some history while looking at some great exhibits.

After seeing a couple recent reviews and driving through Cody, we visited the museum to find a vacant building. Then checked the website and it states that is closed up shop and moved to California. Now reading more articles that this was sold in May 2014 and moved to the Bay area.

I had just spotted this as we drove into town so I thought it might be a fun stop. We ended up spending almost 2 hours in here watching all of the scenes created in the museum. Then visiting the store! Great for kids and adults!!

HOLD ON==yes, this was sold to a very fine museum collector in California (he didnt want to just let it go to anyone or close it down) The will spend the year(?) slowly packing it up. I dont know what's left when you come by, but there was such a mind-boggling collection that even if you saw 1/5 of it, it would be worth it... well, it's free, so what do you have to lose? -- there is also a big Western gift shop -- it is listed twice on Trip Advisor I believe bec. of the gift shop. == the center is (was) a gigantic miniature train diorama of the Old West. Along all four sides were collections of the Old West, being heavy on the Native American items. It wasn't just a couple of beaded coats or axes, but a dozen or more of each item, and tastefully displayed, like on Indian blankets. Some very rare pieces, like a dug out canoe and one made of animals skins -- it pays to Really Look at everything! Free parking in front, and a restaurant next door. It's on main street just as you are leaving town. There are doors betw. the shop and the museum.
