Being from Ohio I was not really interested in the teacher's from Kansas. But...the Hall of Fame has a... More

I really liked the wax museum and the painted murals and history about how these gun fighters lived and died. One price for this and the teachers museum. I had no interest in the teachers but loved it. I recommend these two.

Fun but they might be kinda scary for very young children since they are wax. My 3yr old did not like it, but my 7yr and 8yr did. There is also a new school house in back!

Spend your money and your time exploring other sites in Dodge City. The people were very nice but the exhibits were mediocre.

It was good. It just wasn't great. Ok to see once for the educational benefits. Ladies were friendly and very informative. Enjoyed for the most part.

Went through the whole thing in a about 30 minutes and read every caption about all the characters really was hoping for more.

It has definitely seen better days, at least the wax figures have, but my girls loved it. It was worth the stop, but not something you would want to go to over and over again. It is upstairs from the Teachers Hall of Fame. The Halloween room was a huge hit with my children.

We stopped here actually in Aug. 2013 on the last day of our weekend trip for the rodeo. We enjoyed the wax statues. I loved the Halloween like room the best. My husband enjoyed the Gunsmoke characters.

This is located upstairs from the Teachers Hall of Fame. They are working to improve it with the use of technology like the Teachers Hall of Fame.

The Wax figures were in very poor condition. And some of them looked the same. Not all of the areas had anything. Kind of disappointed. Wouldn't have paid the $5 per person to see it.
