This is a small museum but packed full of interesting interactive things. The displays are interesting and presented in different manners. The most fun was the picture booth. You could choose a picture and insert yourself. So much fun and laughs.

In my opinion it does the cowgirl profession justice and represents just how talented these women really are, outdoing their male counterparts...More

Learning something new about "cowgirls." Nice exhibits. Gift shop is expensive, but what gift shop isn't. Great attraction if you are in Ft. Worth
