If you are interested in the wild west, Wyatt Earp, and gunslingers this is a must see! There was a huge collection of guns and other memorabilia. My daughter loved the exhibit of the buffalo that simulated what the ground would feel like during a stampede.

I was so.... excited to get here and see the collection of historical items, walk the areas were Famous Cowboys, lawmen, and outlaws had been. A vast majority of the everything has been recreated or brought to from Ft. Dodge. The cemetery was moved, but they said 6 graves are original. This town recreated in 1955 and was used to... More

the museum is a MUST, as is a walking tour of down town. Doc Holliday & Wyatt Earp lived & breathed here.

We stopped in Dodge City during a recent family road trip. We spent a few hours there and had a wonderful time. It was a great history lesson for the kids while enjoying the fun family activities they have to offer. My son got "deputized" and my daughters learned to can-can dance in the Long Branch Saloon. We all sipped... More

My husband and I stopped here after hearing wonderful things from his grandparents. It was a hot day but we enjoyed seeing the little town and all the history. I thought it would be a little more hokey and corny but it was not! I wish we could have stayed for the dinner and show!

The staff are all dressed in character and period. They work very hard at giving you historical info on the life and times of Dodge City. This is a must if you have children or Gunsmoke fans. Everyone will love the museum. The children loved the "shootout'. We opted for the dinner, which was delicious..plenty of food. Would also highly... More
