Gunfighters Wax Museum

Field review by the editors.

Dodge City, Kansas

Dodge City was a hotbed of Wild West activity in the 1870s. Local luminaries Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp, however, aren't enough to fill an entire wax museum, even a small one. So the Gunfighters Wax Museum tosses its lasso around every Old West icon it can: Jesse James, Calamity Jane, Doc Holliday, even fictional characters (some who weren't even gunfighters) such as Festus and Miss Kitty from long-gone TV shows like Gunsmoke. Approached with the right attitude, especially if you appreciate the often hit-or-miss art of wax heads, this can be fun.
