Leonard's Museum, Fort Worth

(40+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
In 1918, Marvin Leonard opened a small store that sold groceries and salvaged merchandise. He was soon joined by his brother Obie and the store grew to occupy over six blocks in downtown Fort Worth. Leonard Brothers became a store so large that even to this day it dwarfs anything that any single retail user has ever tried to accomplish. The Leonard Brothers invented the superstore and was a cross between a modern day super store and a shopping mall. It was a place to purchase merchandise and a place to meet up with friends. Going to Leonard’s on a Saturday was an event that the whole family looked forward to doing together whether they traveled to the store from across town or from across the state.

  • This great little (tiny) museum, dedicated to one of the country's most iconic and innovative old department stores (no longer in business) will be interesting to anyone interested in "classic" family...  more »
  • A cool museum that is an accurate blast from the past of Fort Worth. The grill has variety of burgers and fries. I ordered the tomato basil soup (bowl was about $8) and it was worth it. Will go back.  more »

  • At first glance you are hesitant to enter but once inside, WOW. The young lady there is so full of knowledge in once was a major store the Ft Worth area. And if you are hungry there is an adjoining restaurant with what I hear has the best burgers!
  • My friend and I decided to pop into this museum on a whim the day before I left town and man am I glad we did! The staff were quite knowledgeable and answered lots of random questions I had.
  • Awesome piece of Fort Worth history!
  • Beautiful little shop to learn a bit about sweet Americana.
