Revisited after many years - cost our family $35 to walk thru tired exhibits. Then each "special" demonstration asked for tips. REALLY? I would not go out of my way to see this tourist trap

The People of the Plains exhibit in the Boot Hill museum was is one of the many impressive aspects of Dodge City. The museum also had an audio/video representation of a Buffalo hear stampede that rattles your... More

My husband and I toured the Boot Hill Museum and really enjoyed it. One thing we found helpful is your ticket is good all day. We had to leave to meet the trolley tour and we were able to reenter the museum without having to pay extra. We found the whole museum very interesting and educational. The gun fights were... More

We were so disappointed we drove to Dodge City to see this fake town on the way the town may have looked and things could have been during that time period. We drove to the gates and didn't even waste the time to pay to get it in. We did drive around town and see some historic sites that were... More

I recently visted the Boot Hill Museum. The brochure indicated there were dinners and a gun fight that could be attended to, but alas, the snack bar closed at 5, no dinners, gun fights. This should be identified as to times and days in the brochure which it was not. This left the visitor to expect much more than what... More

Love studying the history of a town and this one shared not only the town's history but the 1800's also. Great interest!

We moved to Kansas in May and had a chance to take some visiting family to Dodge City. It was also our first time to visit. We attended the Saloon Show, the outdoor Gunfight recreation, had the wonderful buffet meal and explored the museum and all the little stores around the area..... TRULY a great family time. All of it... More

Came here for the history. Is kept up well and the grounds are clean. Enjoyed the "original" boot hill. However we arrived during the week (after school was in) only to learn that the show we were looking forward to is only on weekends during the school since numerous cast members are in college or high school.

It was nice going through the buildings at your pace. Interesting exhibits and great for a history buff. We did thecombo ticket of dinner and show along with admission to the museum. Dinner was really good, the gunfight was well done, and the saloon show was excellent. The family enjoyed the whole experience.
