Great place to learn about the history of Dodge City. Museum closes at 5, but cowboy dinner, gunfight and variety show are from 6-8:30ish.
Our map didn't take us right to it, but we eventually found it in Roosevelt Park.
This attraction is located in a nicely maintained park. Bring a picnic lunch or dinner and eat at one of the picnic tables. Public restroom is available across the street at the fire station.
We relaxed for a bit on the swing and enjoyed the nice weather. An elderly resident even made a trip over to us from his home just to bring us a button to remember our visit. This man's visit and how clean and well-maintained the swing was made it apparent that the town is proud of their swing. Very sweet!
Worth ever penny!! Amazing and interactive zoo. We fed a giraffe, rhino, lemur, lorikeets, and the list goes on. You can even walk with and pet the kangaroos. They even have demonstrations - vet training with white tiger and playtime for the honey badgers were fun! Zookeepers control each interactive area and explain how to properly interact with the animals. Some animals are on feeding schedules, which keeps them from overeating.
We had no idea some many dinosaurs roamed this area and their fossils are still being uncovered today. Our favorite part was going into the fossil lab and watching the fossils being uncovered. Very informative and friendly staff.
