This is on the second floor of the Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame Museum, so it is fun to tell people you went to the Teacher's and Gunfighters museum in Dodge City. Very hokey, as wax museums are, but fun. The type of "tourist trap"...More

Ok, it's a bit corny, and some of it is a little weird (like Dracula & two Presidents featured in a gunfighters museum) but it's worth seeing as general background to the characters you will hear mentioned repeatedly in the history of Dodge City. Not...More

This is the museum that is combined with the Kansas Teachers. Has a few wax figures, don't know if they are all true to life.

This was my first wax museum, and it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Many of the exhibits were dark, the halls were dark (to illuminate the artwork above the cases), and seemed small. Still, it was part of the Teachers Museum, so it's not...More

We've seen movies and read articles about the Dodge City gunfighters, marshalls and gangsters for years, so this little museum was a must-do. The displays have probably been here for quite some time, but they're still nice and there are extensive descriptions regarding each person...More

The folks running the museums were very kind and friendly. I will say however, that the price was pretty steep for what it was. If you're interested in Kansas schools and Wax this would be a good attraction but if you're only here for the...More

Below average wax works of many of the old west characters. They added in JFK and LBJ as well as Wolfman and Dracula. Not great work but sort of interesting.

I love to travel and visit museums. Although small everything is a learning experience. Not expensive.

I don't remember seeing any t-shirts, though they do have a small gift shop. However, most of the items in the shop are for the Kansas Teacher's Museum that is in the same building with the Gunfighters Wax Museum.

Your best bet is to call ahead, when I was there in Dec, they were not there. It was viewing by appt only. The tourist town of Dodge City was also closed.
