We were actually visiting during our spring break. One of us being a teacher thought it would be a good stop. However, they were closed. So I called to find out hours & someone answered phone. He stated they didn't open till May 1st. So while we were sitting in car trying to find something else to do, this gentleman comes out and tells us he's the manager and started telling us other things to do. Then offered to take us in & show us the museum. Some other people saw us going in & he let them in too. This guy went out of his way to show us the teachers museum & gave a lovely tour. Unfortunately we didn't get his name but would highly recommend this to a ny teacher or person interested in education.

As a teacher, I was interested in seeing this place, even though my connections to Kansas are minimal, apart from liking the state. I quickly learned upon entering that Kansas is the only state in the US with something like this (I don't know of anywhere in Canada that does either). It's not only a place for excellent Kansas teachers to be recognized, but also serves as a resource for anyone doing research on Kansas education history, and is also a museum on education, showing different aspects of how teaching and education have changed over the years. (Much more than the typical museum "classroom of the 1800s"!) There are displays on how lesson planning and curriculum have changed over the years, as well as how technology changed (there was even a copying machine that pre-dated the infamous Gestetner!). Dennis and Mary Lou were very friendly and informative, and we had a great discussion, and really enjoyed getting to know them and comparing stories and insights. My wife, who is not a teacher, said that it was much better than she expected it to be, and she really enjoyed her visit as well. Thank you, Dennis and Mary, for such a wonderful visit!

We actually went to see the gunfighters wax museum but also housed in this building is The Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. The wax museum figures were okay but the history of the various characters sited were excellent. After visiting the wax museum we went downstairs to see the Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. There were many items of yesteryear! It was fun reminiscing from our younger days! It was well organized. One of the tour guides gave us an excellent tour and she was well informed. She walked us out to a recently restored one room school house. She told us the history of how they acquired the school house and explained the history of the old school items. She also explained what criteria needs to be met for an inductee to be part of their Hall of Fame Gallery for teachers. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable!

I only came here to see the gunfighter museum but this was really interesting and the volunteer tour guide was wonderful. I love the old school house and the old but modern one out back.

I think my youngest daughter liked this place better than Boot Hill. They have many wax figures to look at and the kids loved it. It is not very big and it is right by Boot Hill Museum. They have a little gift shop as well.

You get a personal tour of the museum. They have put a lot of work and effort into making this museum. They are still making improvements. We had a very friendly retired teacher give us the tour.

It's about time our teachers were recognized and Kansas is the state that does it. Fascinating, informational and run by someone who really knows the subject and history.

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.
