We really didn't expect the entrance fee - though we probably should have. Nonetheless, the overall experience was positive. Since we went in the middle of winter, all the wonderful activities that normally go one were silent - but it was still nice to walk around the grounds and learn a little history at the same time.

Love the fusion of a museum of plain indians as well as life in the west. Incredible to see so many artifiacts. The muesum itself its 80% of front street, as well as an old church, house, and school. there is a functioning saloon where you can order draft beer (wish they had whisky) and sasparilla. Sasparilla is essentially root... More

There is a lot of history to learn about. The employees are very informative and you can tell they love their job and share their enthusiasm. During the summer from Labor day to Memorial day is the best time to go but they are open all year.

Try to go when they are going to have a gun fight or other special activity. Lots to walk around and see and the gift shop is huge. We have gone a few times, our children love Boot Hill!

We were the only visitors on a cold Sunday afternoon. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The museum is a blast to walk through, especially if you are an Old West aficionado. They also have a Native American museum on site which we didn't have time to visit. The gift shop has lots of memorabilia to tempt you.

We spent the afternoon here during our visit to Dodge City. It is a fun and interesting place to visit. There is lots of old west cattle drive and wild west history here. A fun place for old ages. It was worth the time we spent there.

It was interesting to wander through the old town recreation. However, we had been lead to believe that the whole area was a recreated "downtown" with open shops and attractions and what not and we're disappointed to learn it's just a tourist attraction (but I guess that's our own fault). The staff are quite helpful and nice, if there are... More
