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,... More

While basically looks like a gift shop, in the back for a small charge there are extensive miniature-figure dioramas of many western topics, plus a first-class set of display cases of native Indian clothing and articles. On west edge of town, south side.

We went thinking the model trains would be running. Instead it is in the middle of construction. Kind of a let down.

The Miniature Village and Museum are sold out - literally - they have been moved to California!! When I asked the owner why they still have their advertising out, he just told me that it still gets foot traffic into his store. Our son was heartbroken that we didn't get to see the much touted miniature village, and frankly so... More
