It’s a small museum, but worth it to get the feel for the Texas experience! I would recommend a look to “get” Texas.

Every day, people walk by this museum without knowing what they're missing. If you want to see how the stockyards looked before it became a tourist destination, then stop by and check this place out. Lots of good information and photos point out the real...More

We came here as part of a tour. Not overall interesting but will appeal to some. The "cattle drive" in the street added to the overall average experience.

this museum is a bit eclectic, covering the stockyards, the livestock processing history of Fort Worth, and cowboys and Indians. It was, however, very interesting, with something for everyone. :)

The museum itself is quite small. However, it has a lot of interesting things to offer. There is an unlucky dress, cowboy memorabilia, lots of pictures, and the second oldest light bulb in the world just to name a few of the cool things you...More

I'm a history buff and I enjoy rodeos, so this place was a great find for me. You get to know a little more about Fort Worth and what characters lived here in the past.

Great little Museum on the Ft Worth Livestock area. The cattle drives on the Chisholm trail to the meat packing. Plenty to see, read, and enjoy a little bit of the 1870 to early 1900s.
