Better than Expected!
Aug 2019
The Wax museum/Teachers HOF/museum is located conveniently right by Boot Hill. Myself, my 70 year old mom and 10 y/o son all enjoyed! The Wax Museum is small and a little dated, but still fun. (Don't expect like a Ripley's wax museum--that's not what you get!) The teachers hall of fame/museum was a LOT more interesting than I expected! I would call this more of a "school museum" So many items for my childhood and my moms! They've done and amazing job restoring an old 1 room school house. (Part of the Teachers HOF is specific to past Kansas teachers, as expected--so that area is probably not as exciting to some). The ladies that run this place were amazing! Super friendly and knowledgeable! They have a very reasonable priced gift shop with some unique items too! We spent an hour or so here.

Disappointing

The curator couple was quite charming but the exhibits were thin. More nostalgia than Hall of Fame. Be sure the check out the old schoolhouse. It is pretty cool and they actually encourage you to touch the exhibits.

The ladies volunteering were super nice and friendly. The wax museum was upstairs, although not handicap accessible was cute and ok. The teacher part of the museum was very interesting. Our volunteer did a great job taking us through it. The artifacts of the museum were fun and took us back down memory lane. Wish there were more teacher museums around. Great idea. Love the little school house in the back.

Education back in the old days of western times.....it’s not not like it is today. Guts, hard work and dedication we’re just the few of the characteristics needed to be a pioneer in field of teaching out west. Times were hard, dangerous and uncertain. Nothing easy or comfortable by any means went with the lifestyle. But a few were well known and not forgotten for their hard earned efforts. The Hall Of Fame is dedicated to the ones who made their mark!

A tribute to the profession.
Jul 2018 • Couples
While in Dodge City we wanted to see what the museum had to offer. We were welcomed by retired teachers who also give personal tours of the facility. The gift shop is small and has lots of local items. The ticket includes a self-directed tour of the wax museum on the upper level. It is eclectic and fine. When you finish upstairs a retired teacher will take you through the facility and tell many interesting pieces of information. One piece of interesting information is the database of the teachers selected for the Hall of Fame. My husband knew one of the teachers! After you spend time looking over the items and reminiscing about your school days you can go out to a completely restored one-room schoolhouse with piano. The grounds are kept up well and is a treat in and of itself (we went in July so everything was still blooming). I like this schoolroom better than the one I saw in Abilene. The facility may not make you want to stop but the memories are worth it. Look and see if your favorite teacher is listed.

So much history and fun knowledge. Not a local or a teacher and still enjoyed it
Jul 2018 • Family
We are from Colorado, and visited Dodge City for the first time. Our first stop was the Kansas Teachers Hall of Fame and Gunfighters wax museum. We learned so much about the history of teachers. It was actually quite fun! Redonda gave us a tour, she was full of charisma and knowledge. She made the tour that much more fun! The wax museum was neat as well. I thought it was odd that there was a Dracula part in the wax museum, that’s the only reason I’m giving this review 4 stars instead of 5. I felt it took away from the history and genuineness of the museum.

If you are not a teacher or a local Kansas ex-student, you may find this to be uninteresting
May 2018 • Couples
It's unique.....a tribute to good teachers in Kansas. Ex-students can search a database for their teachers. There are many exhibits of teaching aids & equipment from years gone by, which may be of some interest, including a genuine (but relocated) fully equipped turn-of-the-century one room school house. The staff (mostly ex-teachers) are very enthusiastic and give an informative tour.
Bottom line: If you are interested in teaching, it's a must-see. If you are not, go anyway and see the cowboy hall of fame wax museum in the same building. As it's a combined ticket, take a quick look at the teacher's hall of fame as well as the school house out the back.

I am a teacher and was here on Spring Break. Very sad to see this place closed and not open til April. There was a nice caretaker out front cleaning the lawn and he was great, gave good information and insight.
