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.

Interesting movie about Boot Hill area. The building called the museum was actually more of gift shop but guess that "museum" referred to the whole area

Tour will take a while. Lots to see inside. The gunfight is well done and the show at night in the saloon is excellent.

We spent a few hours touring the museum, cemetery, and replica buildings. It is partially at the top of a steep hill (thus the name) so handicapped tourists be aware of another entrance. We had a drink at the saloon while the piano player plucked a few tunes. Employees are dressed in period costumes & we had guided parts from... More

I love old west history, and it was a kick to be in Dodge City where the Earp brothers, the Masterson brothers, and the old west was a bustling cattle yard and gold mining town. Without much time to spend, we loved the cowboy dinner, the shoot out, and show at the Long Branch!!! Had to travel on my birthday,... More

Visit the Museum, Boot Hill, and the Front Street reproduction. It is hokey and hokey, but worth the $30 dollars. Dinner, Gunfight and Show. If you travelled all the way to get to this "out of the way place & Era", you might as well do it up right and enjoy. If you are an old fan of the cowboy... More
