  • My husband and I were spending the day visiting the Fort Worth stockyards. We found the museum to be very interesting with lots of information on the history of the stockyards and Fort worth  more »
  • Every day, people walk by this museum without knowing what they're missing. If you want to see how the stockyards looked before it became a tourist destination, then stop by and check this place out. ...  more »
  • We came here as part of a tour. Not overall interesting but will appeal to some. The "cattle drive" in the street added to the overall average experience.  more »

  • Great place to learn about the history of Texas's cattle-raising. Really helpful and friendly staff eager to help explain things. The museum itself is more like a one-room gift shop, but there are good exhibits of vintage equipment from the city's days as a meatpacking capital. Behind the building are actual stockyards where you see see longhorn cattle, mostly steers. The building itself still houses offices and some cattle-auctions are based there, though much of the trading is online instead of in-person.
  • This museum is a small gem. For the small cost of $2 it holds a wealth of information. You can even pick out a cowboy hat to wear as you sit on a saddle to make your own pictures at no extra cost.
  • It's nice to smell cattle droppings. $5 for pictures on top of longhorns and $2 for petting zoo where we can pet goats, and $7 for small horse riding if your weight is less than 100 lbs. Many stores with a lot of products made in China. We enjoyed the march with longhorn cattle, cow boys and cow girls at 4:00 p.m. Food is ok worth the experience.
  • First time attending, nice museums to walk through, children loved the maze, interesting cattle drive
  • This small museum is a lot of fun. For just $2, it is hard to pass up. I'd definitely recommend going if you find yourself at the Stockyards.
