Take a step back in time at Boot Hill Museum, where you can see a living history of the American Wild West. Taking its name from the cemetery that once stood in the area--one that was generally reserved for cowboys and figures who died violent deaths--the museum catalogues a variety of topics, events, and people from the history of western expansion. Visit the recreated city street--which often features costumed western characters--and wander its shop fronts, admiring its displays of period buildings and interiors. Browse its extensive collection of more than 60,000 objects pertaining to the era, including Native American artifacts, photographs, firearms, clothing, and personal items from many of the city's past residents. Keep your eyes open and you may even see a re-enacted gunfight or other historical drama right outside. Use our Dodge City online trip itinerary maker to add Boot Hill Museum and other attractions to your Dodge City vacation plans.

  • Museum has a lot of information and displays about the famous characters in Dodge City's history. Plan ahead and see when the gunfight re-enactment is scheduled. There is also a visitor center...

  • So much fun! Loaded with great interactive displays, exhibits and history this place has so much! Be prepared to spend some time here. The town is so cute and authentic. I loved the general store! There are cowboys walking around and folks in costume. So much to learn!
  • I absolutely loved going here. The museum was so much fun and I learned a lot. During summer they have extended hours which is nice. We did the old time photo and the photographer was so fun to work with. She even made my 17 year old smile. I love how you're transported to a different time as soon as you enter the museum.
