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.

Our tour group stopped here on our way to Albuquerque. We all learned a lot about quarter horses and enjoyed the exhibits. There were three areas, one being a hands-on, interactive area that young ones would enjoy.

Quarter horse center is a great day trip for small to elementary age kids. They have a great history lesson on the quarter house and its contribution to the Texas panhandle. Lots of small hands on items for young kids to do.

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.
