Relive the Legend




Boot Hill Museum will open at 2:00pm on Tuesday, September 17th and will remain open until 7:00pm.  The museum will be without electricity, internet or phones during the earlier part of the day while a local utility company upgrades and provides service for a new business coming to the area. 


Boot Hill Museum apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause for visitors.  Every attempt will be made to open earlier if possible.  We hope extending our evening hours until 7:00pm will encourage everyone to stopover.  We appreciate your help in spreading the word to all guests of Dodge City!  Updates will be posted on the museum’s Facebook page and website, boothill.org.


Boot Hill Museum
is located on the original site of Boot Hill Cemetery and highlights the glory days of the Queen of the Cow towns with creative, lively, interactive displays and activities the entire family will enjoy.  Boot Hill Museum is open all year long where you can belly up to the bar for a cold sarsaparilla, enjoy some of grandma’s homemade fudge in the General Store or take home a lasting memento of your old west experience from the Boot Hill gift shop.

During the summer months, children’s activities, gunfight reenactments, country-style dinners and the Long Branch Variety Show provides entertainment like none other!  Cool off in the Beatty and Kelley Ice Cream Parlor before you become a character of the past in an Old West Photo.
