While the stockyards themselves were like a carnival while we were there, due to a rodeo, this small museum was very nice. We particularly enjoyed talking with the gentleman inside about many things in Fort Worth. He loves his city and is a good ambassador.

Took about an hour to look through this great display of wagons and buggies, Rodeo Hall of Fame. You can go at your own pace. Very cool and relaxing.

This is an interesting collection of Texas and stockyard related memorabilia. The second longest burning lightbulb in the world is also here! It has been burning nonstop for 108 years. Also interesting was an early cattle prod, made with a cane and battery. Skip is a great guy, with lots of knowledge. It was a pleasure talking with him. Definitely... More

It's not an extra fancy museum and it is the big at all. I went through in about 20 mins. There was lots of neat older stuff on display but it was annoying having to look past all the "do not touch" signs. I would say go to it if you're at the Stockyards and need to pass sometime especially... More

I love this place and enjoy all there is to learn about this area. It is a great place to take the family and just enjoy the history. What a great place and it feels like you are going back in time.

Really nice to see some cultural things about Texas and get some much needed walking. Lots of stores around the area so overall nice trip.

This museum is packed to the brim with pieces of history. As with most museums, there was a don't touch policy for most items, but they do have a saddle and some cowboy hats you can use for a photo op. Really interesting stuff. I especially enjoyed reading about the female trick riders.

So much history. The walking tour was worth it. It rained for a few minutes but it did not hamper the tour. Educational and fun.
