  • So much to see and enjoy. The history of history of this area in ranching is very interesting and educational. 
  • This is a very unique place. Lots of different buildings with different architecture for various time periods. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes and clothes depending on the weather. 
  • Excellent exhibits and information. Lots of information and buildings to see. Worth every minute we spent there. 
  • Seeing through actual historical buildings how ranching came to exist in TX gives a fair idea of the living conditions of those pioneer ranchers... The carriages and lever action rifles collections are quite nice too.
  • The National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock is a great place for family outings. The facilities and the grounds are very well maintained and the events hosted at the NRHC are second to none. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable, and the ranch dwellings and structures are fascinating. The NRHC is well suited for kids and adults. The new APP that was recently released is full of information and will take you on a self guided tour. If you are in Lubbock for a meeting, football game, or family get together, you should consider taking a tour through the NRHC.
  • It was a great experience I loved the four sixes barn it looked amazing inside overall it's fun
  • Every time I have gone has been worth the time spent with Grandma stories I would have never heard otherwise! Wear comfortable shoes!
  • This is a hidden gem on the Texas Tech Campus. Experience the authentic history of the evolution of ranching in West Texas. There's more buildings than you can count on this property that offer a glimpse into ranching's heritage. This is a fun weekend trip or go to one of the many special events they offer.
