We spent a few hours touring the museum, cemetery, and replica buildings. It is partially at the top of a steep hill (thus the name) so handicapped tourists be aware of another entrance. We had a drink at the saloon while the piano player plucked a few tunes. Employees are dressed in period costumes & we had guided parts from... More

I love old west history, and it was a kick to be in Dodge City where the Earp brothers, the Masterson brothers, and the old west was a bustling cattle yard and gold mining town. Without much time to spend, we loved the cowboy dinner, the shoot out, and show at the Long Branch!!! Had to travel on my birthday,... More

Visit the Museum, Boot Hill, and the Front Street reproduction. It is hokey and hokey, but worth the $30 dollars. Dinner, Gunfight and Show. If you travelled all the way to get to this "out of the way place & Era", you might as well do it up right and enjoy. If you are an old fan of the cowboy... More

The nice thing about this Museum is everything. It is a self guided tour so you can take your time. Dodge City is long gone due to urban renewal etc etc. This is all that is left - so use your imagination, grab your cowboy hat and go believe in the OLD West. We spent several hours and you are...

The Boot Hill Museum gives a glimpse into the history of Dodge City in the later 1800's. It has some interesting artifacts and period items. The main street looks great from the outside, but for the most part does little besides provide a backdrop to the gunfight at high noon. It is $10 per adult for admission (unless you want... More

We got to see the gunfight this year. That was a welcome treat. We got autographed photos of the gunfighters too. We took the time to read the Native American info this year (one of my main reasons for returning this year). The fudge is awesome from one of the little stores. It is just a nice little museum that... More

A somewhat hokey museum of the wild west. Would be good for young kids, but not much for adults. There is a good museum store to purchase souvenirs.

We enjoyed the Boot Hill museum. You definitely do not need a whole day to see it, though, We spent about 2 hours and were on our way to our next destination. The artifacts and information were interesting and we thought it was worth the stop.

We were surprised that the city is not more tourist friendly. The museum is one small area and although the city has medallions affixed to the sidewalks, there's just not much to write home about.
