Everything you every wanted to know about Quarter Horses and the old west. Wonderful museum and a place to spend some time as a break from traveling. It would be possible to spend a few hours if the time permits.

Beautiful building inside. Historical information, displays of racing and western riding items, donations have made this a nice national museum for us who are horse lovers, especially the quarter horse.

There isn't really much interaction or deep information about quarter horses. Mostly filled with time lines and a memorial to those involved in the AQHA association. Would not recommend for children.

This is a true tribute to quarter horses and the people throughout history that made them what they are today. Very classy.
