I thought this was going to be about rodeo riders and famous cowboys. It was a pleasant surprise to see it was more about the history of cowboys including Native Americans. Worth to visit.

We had been to Medora twice before but had not stopped at the Cowboy Hall of Fame until this trip. It was very informative and interesting. If you are a local cowboy history buff this is the place for you.
