The Rex Allen Museum is located in one of Willcox's oldest commercial buildings. Constructed in the early 1890's of adobe, it was purchased in 1897 by Josef Schwertner and operated as the Schley Saloon from 1897-1919. The front of the Museum has been restored to resemble the original saloon storefront.Work out when and for how long to visit Rex Allen Arizona Cowboy Museum and other Willcox attractions using our handy Willcox trip itinerary builder.

This is a small out of the way museum that details the life of one of the western genre actors and his horse. Yes the horse got billing just under Rex's name on all of the movies but the first one Rex... more »
My husband is such a fan of anything "Western", and in the 1990's, when we were visiting our daughter, who was attending Grad School in Tucson, she brought him here twice. I had never been here before... more »

Didn't know that i knew the man... his voice was everywhere in my youth! Interesting museum and glad we made the stop.
I was so happy my friend suggested I stop here. As a fan of cowboy movies and other Western Stars I was happy that they were highlighted here as well certainly a great place to visit.
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.
We actully went to the Willcox Wine Festival at the museum grounds and it was fantastic! Can't wait for next year
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.
