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.

Kind of a cool stop, not a "must do" but okay none the less. I mean, it is Dodge, so there aren't that many awesome things to do aside from go to the bar. A bit of it was hokey, but overall it was worth the time.

Very interesting history and the settings are well done. The statues are not very good wax figurines, but it's not costly ($5 ea) to see and the amount of historical information supplied is well worth the visit.
