Get the heck into Dodge!

Nice museum, good gunfight. Couldn't stay for the dinner and show (sold out!), but really enjoyed soaking up authentic western history.

Fun and as enjoyable as I remember as a child. Try the sasparilla at the saloon. Super cold and better than root beer.

This is great! There is so much history here and I'm so glad we spent the time. In addition to pictures, there are many antique tools, etc. to see.

Great museum, good info, perfect setting... I would have assumed they'd have more events going on for Dodge Days. Sadly we missed the High noon shoot out and waiting again til 7pm wasn't going to work ...

A store with a little bit of everything western. Everywhere you turn there a wonders for your eyes and mind to enjoy from old slot machines to skulls to catcus. It is a delight to check out . You can spend hours in there and still see something new.

The Boot hill Museum Combo ticket, is the best ticket in Town! For 30$ you get access to the Boot Hill Museum which has thousands of items on display. Then you get treated to a delicious dinner, by far the best food we had on our entire trip. Outside you see a gunfight reenactment and then a wonderful 45min Variety... More

Traveling through on way home and needed a break. Stopped, thinking it would be a nice hour or so break. Spent 4 hours and my kids learned about true American West history. Kids still talking about the museum and we're two hours down the road. Only downside was the price was a little higher than most museums.

We visited the town of Dodge City Kansas and had a drink in the Long Branch Saloon. I had a beer and my husband had a sarsaprilla soda. The movie at the gift shop was interesting and described the town at the height of the outlaw days - a great piece of history. We LOVED the staged gun fight outside... More

We spent about 4 hours at the Boot Hill Museum. The movie and the exhibits on the Native Americans were the best part of the museum. There was a lot of information about the Native Americans that was new for me. There was quite a bit of local Dodge City history. The experience was worth the cost of admission in... More

Lots to see and do with many shops and exhibits. Park was clean and the staff was courteous. The gun fight was fun to watch and the many building were a joy to visit. Easy to walk but maybe a bit harder for disabled. Signs are everywhere and are clean and easy to read telling about the many citizens and... More
