We saw this attraction from the tour bus and went back to visit it. We did not enjoy this mainly because it is really about teachers of Kansas. If you are a teacher or interested in such, it would be great place to visit.

We loved this tour. The retired teachers that are there to give you a tour are fantastic and full of informaiton about the area. The one room school house that sits in the back of this Hall of Fame is beautiful and really gives you an idea what it would have been like. The gift shop was nice, too. They... More

I liked this..It has info about all of The Teacher's that were in Kansas..Prinicpal's too..If your into education you'd like this..They had a one-room schoolhouse that seemed neat..That was basically the highlight of The Kansas Teacher's hall of Fame. This place was alright..It wasn't awful it just seemed okay,

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!... More

The refurbished School House is a treat, but everything else is mediocre at best! There are a few lunch boxes and books that are high on the nostalgia meter. but, otherwise if you aren't from kansas you have no idea who the featured teachers are!They did however have a reasonably priced gift shop!
