It is really interesting to see the things in the early west, and their methods and tools of survival. Historical exhibits illustrate the life and times of early Dodge City. Of course you also will see the famous Longbranch saloon. My visit was probably 35 years ago, so I would imagine there is a lot more to see now.

The collection of authentic Dodge City artifacts is amazing. We enjoyed speaking to everyone and the kids and adults both liked the gun fight =)

We rolled in to town without a plan, really. We needed to eat dinner and we'd just been in the saddle for 6 hours. My husband whipped out his laptop and searched Boot Hill and came up with the Museum. He called and they said the last dinner/show was coming up, and to hurry over. We made it with about... More

Great place to go. Something for everyone. We purchased the $30 ticket which included the museum, gift shop, front street shootout, Boothill cemetery, dinner and variety show. The dinner was excellent. The actors, and staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend. Has some props you can take pictures on like a stagecoach etc. .. Loved Miss Kitty's Saloon.

Enjoyed the history and the authentic buildings. Learned that Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson were deacons in the first church!

Wandering the Front Street area in the day was ok. Not amazing. The Shootout was fun, so was worth it. The Variety Show, however, made the whole trip to Dodge City worth it (combined with the excellent breakfast at our B&B, that is). Most of the entertainers were very young, but did a great job. Surprisingly talented! And Miss Kitty... More

This museum is really well worth the time to stop. If you are lucky like I was and arrive just the right time, you will see the shootout at noon. (Or you can call ahead to find out, but I did not) For those few minutes spent in each different building, you really feel that you went back in time.... More

We visited as a family. Very interesting, had lots of history, and my grandson loved the gun fight. A must see for anyone who loves the old west, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday!

Spent 4 hours in there looking, because I wanted to, not because there was too much!! It was very interesting and fun. Loved the gift shop.

We did the combo tickets for a family of 5 (kids 6, 9, and 10). We arrived at 4:00 and had plenty of time to go thru the museum before the country-style supper at 6:00. The food was good and there was plenty. The shootout at 7:00 was fun. The kids really enjoyed it. After we saw the variety show... More
