We visited here during a family trip. It was full of interesting tidbits of history, and was also a small gift store, so you are paying to shop as well as learn. It was minimal though, and worth the donation to see such interesting stuff.

Saw a rodeo & the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show & the museum was only 1/2 open & it was not that special, what we were able to see.

This is a nice museum that shows the history of the area. Cheap! It was great to find the 2nd oldest light bulb there.

We chanced upon this museum while waiting for the cattle drive. It’s a gem, full of artefacts from bygone days and stories about the colourful characters of the time. You could spend hours marvelling at some of the exhibits. A must visit when in the...More

There are a lot of things crammed into a relatively small area within the old cattle industry administrative building. While they are not arranged particularly well to tell the full history of Fort Worth, if you know something of the history already, you can relate...More
