Boot Hill Museum

Step back into the 1870's as you walk down the boardwalk of Front Street at Boot Hill Museum, a western history village museum located on the original site of Boot Hill Cemetery in downtown Dodge City.

A chuck-wagon dinner, gunfight re-enactment and a Long Branch Variety Show is offered every evening beginning Memorial weekend through the third or fourth week of August (Subject to change). Summer daily daytime entertainment includes history displays, stagecoach rides through downtown Dodge City and gunfight re-enactments.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
