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 Museum. They have a little gift shop as well.

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.

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.

We were actually visiting during our spring break. One of us being a teacher thought it would be a good stop. However, they were closed. So I called to find out hours & someone answered phone. He stated they didn't open till May 1st. So while we were sitting in car trying to find something else to do, this gentleman... More

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.
