Wild West City Educational Programs

When it's time to study American history during the 1860's to 1900, it's time to bring the class to Wild West City. We offer two programs designed to maximize the learning experience by giving the students a day in Dodge City, circa 1880.

They'll be immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and feel of the Old West as our knowledgeable staff recreates life from days gone by. Choose the program that matches your students' curriculum and be prepared for the day they'll remember for years to come!
