The staff was great and there is plenty of history in this museum. The gift shops are unique. Go during the summer when you can see the shoot outs that occurs twice a day.

The Boot Hill Museum is a must see if you are a fan of western history. It was beyond our expectations and well worth the time. It has a very knowledgeable staff who was very courteous and helpful. Very informative and educational displays.

Boot Hill is almost exactly what you would think it would be. People dressed in character. And put on top of that, a few "old-timey" looking items on display.

It gives you a good history of the town in a film you see. Boothill cemetery is there but all the graves were moved to another cemetery some time back. The replica town is ok to walk through. It doesn't take long.

Reasonably priced. As far as the tour, it was off season so no shows or gunfight so we passed on this tour.
