Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, TX

Mosey on in to an expansive salute to the American cowboy. The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame pays tribute to rodeo stars and heroes of the west. It features exhibits that show what life was like for a cowboy and honors some of the great cowboys of the past. The building that houses this collection of true grit is itself a relic of the past.

Built in 1888 to shelter thousands of horses and mules, the original wooden structure burned to the ground but was reconstructed in 1912. The Cowboy Hall of Fame doesn’t forget little cowpokes, either. A fun, hands-on exhibit features four stations to learn how a cowboy would pack his horse, brand a longhorn, cook from a chuckwagon and dig for arrowheads.
