Boot Hill Museum
Mission & Vision Statement:
The mission of Boot Hill Museum is to preserve and interpret the Old West through exhibits, education and entertainment reflective of the area’s rich heritage.
Our vision for Boot Hill Museum is to be a recognized destination for our guests to experience the history and relive the legend of Dodge City.
I would highly recommend the dinner! They serve brisket, cream corn, biscuits, potatoes and onions, and slaw with apple crisp for dessert. Portions are plentiful with opportunity to go back for a second helping. The shootout and show were decent, but I would not pay to attend them again. The museum was very interesting, especially the first portion about the Plains Indians. Nice facilities and nice staff. Worth a visit!
Original, Cory, cool, genuine, good clean fun. I did the combo ticket which turned out to be a pretty good deal. Dinner was good, all you can eat. Museum was decent. Really liked the old Victorian house and furnishings. Miss Kitty's stage show was corny and fun. All in all I'd say it was a very good value and I'm glad I came.
This was a nice detour on our trip across Kansas. All of the inside parts were air conditioned. They had additional content like a saloon show/dinner and shootout if you were staying the evening. We only paid for the museum part ($12) and spent more than the 15 minutes we thought it would take. But it was interesting and as it was based on the history of the city, I enjoyed it better than just a "replica" site.
This was an interesting stop on a cross country trip. It's obviously directed at tourism, but that's to be expected. The staff were wonderful and friendly, and the reconstructed town front was a nice was to experience the lighter side of history.
Lots of interesting relics from one of America's classic Old West towns. Stop in at the Long Branch Saloon and you can enjoy a cold beverage.
