We are huge fans of the oldTV series Gusmoke. It's good to see a community embrace their claim to fame and promote it. We visited off season so many of the activities were not available.

We stopped in for a while and looked around. We really liked the museum and the three original buildings they had next to it. I liked the guns they had on display

This museum is on the site of the famed "Boot Hill" grave yard in Dodge City. In addition to the grave sites there are numerous displays and historical artifacts including the recreation of the businesses lining front street in old Dodge City. Well worth a couple of hours for the visit.

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.

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.
