If visiting Texas...do venture to the Fort Worth area, rich with Texas history and the tales of cowboys and cattle drives. The rich Texan History even makes a Yankee proud. (I am however fond of my 7 years as a Texas resident). Not only rich in culture and history but FOOD and shopping near by. Great experience for young and... More

The Stockyard area of Fort Worth is worth seeing. It is in the old part of town and has a county charm and its free to walk around. The Museum is worth seeing. You don't see riders in old time gear and long horn cows going down the street very often but here it happens twice a day and they... More

The Stockyards Museum, located in what once was the Fort Worth Stockyards building provides an intriguing look into the past of Fort Worth. The 2nd longest burning light bulb (105 years!) and the bad luck wedding dress are worth the stop.

It maybe small but it is packed with interesting artifacts and information on old Stockyards and the cattle industry. There are a few quirky things such as the chair made entirely out of horns and the Bad Luck Wedding Dress - doom and gloom came to any bride that wore it. Nowadays it is on display in this museum. There... More

We went in Feburary for Valetines weekend and had a blast. We only stayed one day but I would reccomend staying over night and spending two days here. Lots of places to eat and lots of fun things to see and do. Love the long horn steers they have for people to have their pictures sitting on. It cost $5... More

$2/person. Spent over an hour here. Lots of exhibits. The curators are so friendly and went above and beyond their duty to entertain us. We were looking for some family history of early migration via wagon trails from the east. Even though we couldn't find any records, the museum was great and the hospitality even greater. Thanks. There is also... More

What a fun little find! We had fun exploring the museum and talking to the curators. They gave us a postcard of the famous light bulb and a magnet. It was an impromptu decision to visit and we were glad we did.
