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.

My sister and I took our 9 year old boys and we were bored the first 5 minutes. We stayed and tried paying attention due to the sweet elderly woman giving us the your. Not sure this should be something for kids...maybe just for teachers and curious adults.

What a fun stop in Dodge City, KS! The KansasTeacher Hall of Fame is a wonderful tribute to the states' teachers, those living and those who have passed on. The "classroom" brought back many memories from the books I first learn to read with to the many different desk I sat in thoughout my K-12 education. The Hall of Fames'... More

As a teacher, I was interested in seeing this place, even though my connections to Kansas are minimal, apart from liking the state. I quickly learned upon entering that Kansas is the only state in the US with something like this (I don't know of anywhere in Canada that does either). It's not only a place for excellent Kansas teachers... More

Pretty lame, not much more to say. I mean, it is just teaching, not exactly rocket science here. Definitely go to the Boot Hill Museum instead.

It's about time our teachers were recognized and Kansas is the state that does it. Fascinating, informational and run by someone who really knows the subject and history.

Have donated several volume of books this last year but the most valuable one is the 1900 Spelling Book. Stop and check it out.
