This was a great stop. We Spent about 2 hours here before we knew it. Charge up your camera! You will need to be ready for all the photos you will be taking. The town is well preserved. Most of the buildings are open and you can poke around in them. The banister in the hotel is in great condition! The old wallpaper made me Giggle. :)

Went here for the first time yesterday. The ghost town is well maintained and very fascinating. I highly recommend you spend the extra couple of dollars for the guide book as it is full of historical information on each house and events that occurred in the town.
Best ghost town ever. You really see how they lived. Very well preserved. Lots of buildings to go through.
We volunteer at Bannack Days every year. .3rd weekend in July. Great fun with all the visitors. Dale Carlson, Park Manager, and his excellent staff fo such a great job there. You should all come and join in the fun.
