  • A lovely museum , focusing on Cowboys and Western Heritage. Beutiful artwork and sculptures from Native Country, and a life sized replica of a Western Town that you can walk through. There are also beautiful outdoor gardens and quite resting spots with water features. The museum boast an amazing Great Hall, large enough to seat 600-700 people.
  • I have traveled to and seen many museums in the U.S., and I have to say that I loved this one. There was so much to see. It was interesting, quiet, and the staff was very friendly and nice. The art was so amazing. I could have stayed there all day, just looking at some of the beautiful paintings they have on display. And the food is awesome, too. Try the hummus wrap. Yum!
  • I was so blown away. Great museum. Not only if your a cowboy. Its American history. With all its beauty. Can't wait til next year to go back. So glad to be a country girl form the mid west.
  • I love this place it is all about our heritage. They have fantastic displays, they share alot of information with the best public it is all a great experience. I recommend taking the whole family. When my son was 12 or 13 he and I had a father and son outing and I got were has ands wows. It was well worth it. I give this place two thumbs and toes up.
