This is an absolutely beautiful museum...however...if you know nothing about quarterhorses...this museum probably will be over your head. I had to use my smartphone to find out what the definition of a quarterhorse is. So....for the believers and lovers of the quarterhorse..this is mecca. For those who know nothing..hoping to learn...it assumes a level of knowledge. So...its a great special... More

Nice for a quick visit, but not much to it. A little horse information, but more about the former AQHA presidents than about horses.

Wow! If you are into horses, no matter how much, this is your place! From the moment you step in, you are a part of horse heaven. The entrance hall is so grand...on the floor, carved in stone, is a tree of the entire quarter horse blood line. These are names that stick in your memory, like Steel Dust. Imagine... More

Learn the ropes on QuarterHorses. Some engaging interactive exhibits for children. Lots of info on the unfolding of the quarterhorse in America. Well crafted place - fairly captivating. If with kids maybe take an hour. If just adults could spend 3-4 hours here.

This place was great. There was many great places to see and kept my attention the entire time. Great place to stop if your interested into these kind of things. The best part for me was all of the trophies.

There's lots of different things to look at in there. From the history of the quarter horse to the anatomy of the horse. Well worth seeing it, especially for the price.

This was a surprise. I learned so much about the quarterhorse. It has an interactive section reared toward children. It also has an audio option to a self guided tour that offers a very in depth look at the people who were a big part of the American Quarterhorse industry. Like any interest people have they are very passionate about... More
