Wyoming Territorial Prison/Old West Park

Wyoming Territorial Prison features a restored 19th century jail, named the National US Marshals Museum, a recreated frontier town that re-enacts events and includes a dinner theater.

The Horse Barn Dinner Theatre features an original Western musical melodrama. Sites at Frontier Town include a mercantile and saloon, livery stable, smithy, marshal's office and jail. Activities include gunfights, stagecoach and train rides, and gold panning and rope making. Throughout the park, visitors can encounter Butch Cassidy, Calamity Jane and deputy US marshals. Most activities are scheduled for the summer. Guided museum and prison tours are available. Reservations are required for the dinner theater. Located in Laramie.
