This is a nice place to take the family and hang out for the day. The gun fight very fun to watch and the kids loved it!

Go for it and get the package for the museum, dinner, gunfight and saloon show! You will NOT be sorry. 😁 Our family, 3 generations; ages 10-67, had THE best time and we got to be "props" for the saloon show too. We were in...More

I have been wanting to go to Dodge City for many years. Finally made it this year and, unfortunately, was very disappointed. It is a complete and total tourist trap. Looks like a half-hearted attempt at a recreation of the original for the sole purpose...More

Boot Hill Museum is by far the major tourist attraction in Dodge City (at least for retired people). It is well maintained, has a great gift shop, and includes a little view of Boot Hill and then encompasses countless exhibits in different rooms/buildings of the...More

It's entirely up to you how much time you spend going through the museum exhibits. We dinner show gunfight takes about 3 hours. An hour for dinner, half an hour for the gunfight and 90 minutes for the variety performance

$9.00 for seniors. But i think a walk up the hill to whiskey distillery might be a good time also.
