This was a great excursion- a walk back in time, with lots of interesting old things to photograph. If you're a western history buff, you'll love reading some of the stories. If you're an Instagrammer, you'll have a blast.

We absolutely loved this glance into a part of our heritage. They have relocated old western homes, businesses, school, and even a livery stable and built a western town like you would have seen 150 years ago. They also have a real graveyard where they have buried mountain men and famous legends of American history. It was awesome, and very... More

I was skeptical that this was going to be a rather hokey tourist trap - instead found it to be thoroughly enjoyable and extremely well done. If you love history you'll enjoy it too. Lots to see, yet you tour it at your own pace with as much time as you wish to spend.

The whole family enjoyed this attraction. There is a lot of history in these buildings. Make sure you read about them while you are there.

Stopped by to walk the old street and peak into the windows of the old cabins. The owners were preparing for a Christmas celebration and allowed us to walk around as they hung lights and made an antler Christmas tree. Nice people opened a few places allowing us to look in. Invited us to return for the big Christmas celebration.... More

You can not miss this attraction when you go to Cody. About 20-25 cabins which date from 1879 to 1901 have been assembled there. You will see the original "Hole in The Wall" gang's cabin used by Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, a cabin home of "Curley" a Crow Indian army scout who helped guide Lt Col. George A. Custer... More

What a great place to visit. Unlike the Buffalo Bill museum, Trail Town is a fraction of the cost and is full of superb artifacts of a bygone time. The town is set up as a street, consisting of saved buildings from around the area. Each building is full of artifacts from the time, i.e. there's a trappers hut, a... More

There are 26 buildings that have been moved to this property. They date from 1879 to 1901 and are furnished with an extensive collection of memorabilia. There are over 100 horse drawn vehicles displayed. The grave sites of Jeremiah Johnson and 6 others are buried here. Our teenage sons loved this stop.
