Fort Cody Trading Post: Muffler Man

Wonderful classic example of a Tourist Trap that my parents would never stop at. The Muffler Man Native American style was fantastic. Keep this place alive!

Far more than you could take in with only a few minutes. If you're interested in the the old Wild West Show and Buffalo Bill, don't miss this easy stop in North Platte.

The miniature Wild West Show runs every 15 minutes. It doesn't do too much, so don't worry if you miss the action. You can see the show without motion any time.
