Heading to Dodge City meant that I had to check out a museum dedicated to the period that made it most famous.

Dodge City & Boot Hill are musts for history buffs and those wanting a flavor of life in the wild west. The museum, cemetery, gift shop, and friendly staff make it a tour/visit well worth the time. Strongly recommend Boot Hill and Dodge City even in the off season!

Never knew much about the boot hill and just visiting it made me learn oh so much about dodge and the old western days. Had a good time and it helped kill time.

Spent the morning at this museum and going back tomorrow to see the rest of it as the tickets are good for 2 days. Museum and outbuildings are so well done. So much to see. This is a MUST DO when visiting Dodge City. Well worth the price. My husband is a history nut and he was really impressed.
