This is a superb museum looking at the short but violent city before and during the time of Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. Well set out as it was in those days with both a set museum and a street of buildings all housing museums and inter-connected. Highly recommended.

The Boot Hill Museum doesn't look like your typical museum. Built behind the facade of the old west Dodge City the museum displays artifacts in "rooms" which represent the various stores found at the time, and on the TV Show Gunsmoke. It does not lend itself to Handicap accessibility.

The Boot Hill Museum is a great place to learn about the Wild West and an important piece of American history. The museum is located within the various buildings representing life during this time including the general store and saloon. The employees were in character and very entertaining, especially at the saloon. Our teenagers were interested in the weapons and... More

The gunfights are awesome and realistic. They take place right in the crowd. If your into old west history and antiques, Boothill is worth a visit. Additionally, try to catch it during Dodge City Days for may other activities.

Since we traveled in November nothing of excitement was happening. I suppose if it was at peak vacation time it would have been a bit more exciting. I can say I have been to the museum but I was not thrilled with it.
