About Old West Miniature Village and Museum

The Old West lives on at the Tecumseh's Old West Miniature Village and Museum located with Tecumseh's Trading Post. Thousands of miniature figures trace the history of Wyoming and Montana from the 1600s to the late 1890s at the indoor village located near the Cody Rodeo Grounds and Old Trail Town.

Tiny buffalo driven over the edge of a cliff are suspended in mid-fall. Mountain men fight and throw tomahawks at the Green River Rendezvous. A stockade trading post, first known structure built by whites in Wyoming, is besieged by Sioux.

Chief Joseph retreats from the Army through the mountains. Indians communicate with smoke signals. Little Big Horn swarms with hundreds of people. A homestead is burned by Indians, with prisoners marching in front of their captors.

A train winds through the scenes, and visitors can push a button to operate it. Recordings and a map will help guide you through this unique exhibit.
