We had a little bit of time to spend while in Amarillo over the weekend and our 8 year old daughter really wanted to go here. We all had a nice time but we were in and out very quickly, definitely weren't inside anywhere near an hour. Also, a lot of what we looked at wasn't quarter horse specific. For... More

If you are into horses or just thinking about horses, and you are traveling to the Amarillo area, make this a stop on your trip.

Huge bronze plaque, blood lines carved into the floor.... More

Maybe it's not the AQHA's fault I didn't like this place at all. I was expecting a smaller version of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, with a focus on the quarter horse.

Take time to visit this museum just off the interstate. Very well presented for those of us that know little about horses. We enjoyed looking around and talking with the cowboys in the corral.

We have been to Amarillo a lot of times; and didn't even know about this museum. It was very interesting and informative of all the winning horse and riders. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Also, gift shop in lobby.

This place is an amazing museum and a very inexpensive place to visit. Only $16 for a family of 4. Some websites show they are closed on Saturdays but they are open 9-5. Very interesting horse history for those that love horses as much as we do! This is a must see!!

There is always new exhibits and beautiful artwork! The gift shop has great gifts and clothing. The day of the cowboy is always a fun packed day.

My 11 year old daughter rides horses so this was a stop we had to make between Oklahoma City and Albuquerque. It was a vey nice museum with a lot of interesting displays. Our son, 14, even enjoyed the hands on exhibits. This was a nice museum!

Even if you are not a huge horse fan, this is a great gallery! It is beautiful and well done. They have constantly changing exhibits and art work. Very nice place to visit.
