A nice surprise!

I think my youngest daughter liked this place better than Boot Hill. They have many wax figures to look at and the kids loved it. It is not very big and it is right by Boot Hill... read more

I liked this..It has info about all of The Teacher's that were in Kansas..Prinicpal's too..If your into education you'd like this..They had a one-room schoolhouse that seemed neat..That was basically the highlight of The Kansas Teacher's hall of Fame. This place was alright..It wasn't awful it just seemed okay,

We actually went to see the gunfighters wax museum but also housed in this building is The Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. The wax museum figures were okay but the history of the various characters sited were excellent. After visiting the wax museum we went downstairs to see the Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. There were many items of yesteryear!... More

The refurbished School House is a treat, but everything else is mediocre at best! There are a few lunch boxes and books that are high on the nostalgia meter. but, otherwise if you aren't from kansas you have no idea who the featured teachers are!They did however have a reasonably priced gift shop!

I only came here to see the gunfighter museum but this was really interesting and the volunteer tour guide was wonderful. I love the old school house and the old but modern one out back.

We enjoyed visiting the old, 1 room school house. The history of where it came from and how it was restored is very interesting. They let my kids ring the school bell =)

A very honorably tribute to the many wonderful teachers of Kansas. The best part was the wonderful and very informative woman who shared her knowledge and great humor.

Very informative tour but it got a little boring. We enjoyed the wax museum upstairs though. The gift shop was adorable.

You get a personal tour of the museum. They have put a lot of work and effort into making this museum. They are still making improvements. We had a very friendly retired teacher give us the tour.

Very interesting - because we all went to school and could remember all the things that they had on display. Fun to explore.
