Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame

Field review by the editors.

Dodge City, Kansas

The Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame, opened in 1977, was the first teachers' hall of fame in the U.S., and still the only one to share its building with a Wild West wax museum. It's easy to visit, but not easy to get into: nominees have to have been Kansas teachers for at least 25 years, pass 18 induction criteria, and have made "a major contribution" to kids or their profession.

Aside from the Hall of Fame Gallery, with its pictures and information about the inductees, the Hall of Fame has a room devoted to classroom artifacts, including old books and a phalanx of uncomfortable wood desks with tiny hinged tables.
