Buffalo Bill's Wild West in Miniature is really something, isn't it? We can't imagine how long it took them to carve it all, paint it, and then animate many of the parts. All we know is that it is very cool and we're proud to...More

The place had attractions inside and was worth a visit. They had all kinds of souvenirs and neat toys for the kids. Bring a camera and take some photos for a scrapbook.

Thank you for stopping and for your 4 star review!!! We are glad we were worthy of your time, and hope you'll stop again sometime!

The store is chock full of tourist kitsch, some of it pretty humorous. However, the back right corner has some great period artifacts - some claimed to be one of the last few known to be in existence. That alone is worth stopping in.

A must stop on your way west. Fun souvenirs for the kids, old fashioned candy, and a two headed calf. Stop out back to take some silly pics and enjoy the fort in all of its roadside America tourist-trappy goodness

Worth a stop. You're sure to see something interesting. Didn't get to see the wild west show in action. Did get to see the 2 headed calf. Plenty of souvineer options here. Plenty of history books in the back.
