A good evening

This time of year, I recommend coming on Saturday evening, as that's when they have dinner and the shows. Me my wife and daughter went and it was about $100 to do it all

Like the wagon tracks on the Santa Fe Trail this stop is enhanced if you have a vivid imagination or really, really like westerns.

Dodge City isn't worth the visit unless you are passing close by on the way somewhere else. There are a lot of photo opportunities and you can see the Santa Fe trail tracks, Ft. Dodge and cattle feedlot overlook for free. The museum isn't a museum, it's a gift shop and the fake front street is just empty buildings with... More

We have driven by Dodge City a number of times and we finally stopped into the museum. We were not disappointed and could have stayed longer if we had the time. It is very informative. Yes, it could be updated but they have a lot to look at.

Living in Dodge I haven't been to Boot Hill Museum in many years, but I was very impressed with the $30 ticket combo. The museum has several very interesting exhibits, I especially liked the introduction show and the floor shaking buffalo stampede was cool. There are a couple fun places to stop for a drink or ice cream along the... More
