Rex Allen Arizona Cowboy Museum, Willcox

(4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
The Rex Allen Museum is located in one of Willcox's oldest commercial buildings.

The front of the Museum has been restored to resemble the original saloon storefront.

  • The Rex Allen Museum is a wonderful time travel trip into the great era of crooning cowboys dressed in oh so fancy clothes with sequins everywhere and such bright colors. The pictures and memorabilia show a man with a 5 star history. To see the people with whom he was friends, and who supported the museum is very very impressive. However if you do not know the era you will be under-impressed and wonder what all the hubbub is about. As I was with people who had listened to Rex on the radio in their childhood, and seen his movies as youngsters, it was eye opening. For the western enthusiast this is a huge nugget of information and memories. So worth the two dollar admission fee.
  • My dad was a huge fan of western movies. I was named after RA, so I figured I'd check it out while passing through. It was worth the admission. The red Dining Car was a nice way to end our visit.
  • A first trip to Downtown Willcox isn't complete until you have visited the Rex Allen and Cowboy Hall of Fame Museum. You should go if you have any interest or curiosity about the Old Western movies, cowboy music or just great information about the cattle business (that was) back after the 1900's in Cochise County. If you catch one of the local cattle ranchers in the back ask about the Cochise County Cowboy Hall of Fame. You are sure to hear some great tales.
  • Good memories!
