Melted Wax

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 was on my way to NM and made sure to pass Dodge City to see the Gun Fighters wax museum and the Historic Downtown Dodge City. When I got to the museum, there was a sign on the door "Open by appointment only". I was very disappointment, I did not see this when I looked at their web page.... More

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

Exhibits were nice, clean and comfortable inside. The wax "people" were poorly replicated. I think the artist/sculptor did a poor job of making them look authentic or "real like". I really do not know what Buffalo Bill or General Custer looked like in real life, but I do know what Amanda Blake, Milburn Stone and Ken Curtis look like. The... More

I actually liked this.It had Wax Figures of Old Western public figures that made a impression on the Old West and Dodge City,KS. I would recommend going here and bring a camera too..

I was expecting a lot more than what it was. It is inside the teachers museum, which is the only way you can see it. Sorry, but I don't think it is worth the money.

I had not been to a wax museum so that is why we went to the Gunfighter Wax Museum. It was ok. However, it is housed in the Kansas Teacher's Hall of Fame (odd but that is the way it is!!) Being from Ohio I was not really interested in the teacher's from Kansas. But...the Hall of Fame has a... More

I really liked the wax museum and the painted murals and history about how these gun fighters lived and died. One price for this and the teachers museum. I had no interest in the teachers but loved it. I recommend these two.

Fun but they might be kinda scary for very young children since they are wax. My 3yr old did not like it, but my 7yr and 8yr did. There is also a new school house in back!

Spend your money and your time exploring other sites in Dodge City. The people were very nice but the exhibits were mediocre.
