Great museum with a reasonable price. We were able to spend a couple of hours there and really enjoyed all of the exhibits.

We enjoyed all the exhibits and walking through the buildings. We thought the cemetery would be bigger and have more grave markers.

This is an awesome place if you're interested in the Santa Fe trail and the history of the fight to the West. If you ever watched the old Western movies this place brings it all to life. The gun fight was excellent and the staff was friendly and courteous.

Went to Boot Hill Museum and I can say it is just an average museum the area is a replica of the old days when Dodge City was established. They do have 3 buildings that are original to the area. The Boot Hill Cemetery has been moved 3 times so who knows where the people are buried now. Overall this... More

We have been here about 3 times and have enjoyed it every time. Really like the gift shop. Can't really say much for the cemetery. Like the stores and the saloon. Had our picture may in the saloon.

This museum is the cornerstone of Dodge City history. So many facets are covered. Masonic groups, cowboys, business, women's place in history, fashion, education, native Americans, the railroad, it's amazing!

if you enjoy the wild west you need to check it. Make sure to take the trolley around town first and check out the chuck wagon dinner and take in the show at the long branch saloon. not more than a days worth of things to do around town so don't plan on staying too long

They really did a good job on this place! It was a lot of fun walking around the museum! I wish it would have been when there was more stuff going on but alas I chose the wrong weekend up there! But any museum that has a Saloon in it that really sells beer has my vote !!! ;)

This museum and recreated town is amazing. The artifacts and historical ambiance makes you feel like you've stepped back in time.
