The Stockyards are a blast. There are famous stars on the sidewalks, the famous Longhorn Steers, the museums, wonderful western history; and, of course, great shopping and truly wonderful food. You can get some great deals on some truly delicious meals if you walk along the wooden sidewalk. Looking for a cowboy hat, new boots or a new purse -... More

It was great to gain an understanding of cattlemen-why did they drive the Longhorns north? How much did they earn per head? What route did they take and why? What roles did Fort Worth play? Then, the major meat packing companies that employed thousands and shared the stockyards. Our tour guide, a lifetime resident of the area, was full of... More

The cost is only $2.00 each. The experience & education are priceless! This museum really goes the distance in educating the visitor about the old time cattle trade, the history of the Stockyards, & about Texas. If you are interested in those things, DO NOT MISS this museum. The staff is the friendliest we've ever encountered & took a great... More

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
