Museum honors and celebrates women from the past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience and independence that helped shape the American West. There is a big artifact collection. I saw Georgia O' Keeffe Exhibition in this museum. We could take a look into her life since the time she went camping as a young teacher, until her later... More

I can not say there was nothing interesting there, because there is several great displays and cool stuff. With that said, it could be so much more! The cowgirls of the past are awe inspiring and there could be so much more to this place. The cost of admission and the cost of parking is crazy. The gift shop is... More

Visited the cowgirl museum while we were at the stock show. Admission was free with rodeo ticket. What amazed me was the lack of actual museum exhibits. Most of the museum was filled with student artwork submitted for the stock show. The cattle raisers museum next door was better but still not what I had hoped.

Such a beautiful building to house a museum. Loved the holograms set under the balustrade of the first floor railing. I have never seen this done before. The displays were interesting but I was expecting more on the earlier well known women of the west such as Annie Oakley, Calamity Jane, Charley Pankhurst & Ellen L Watson. Perhaps they didn't...

The building sure doesn't look like it would house a cowgirl museum. The displays are mostly on the 2nd floor, so not much of the building is used for the actual museum. That said, we enjoyed it. For more than an hour we wandered through, looking at photos, reading the explanations, watching the movies. Just about everything we know about... More

We spent over a hour reading about a group of women dating back to the early 1800s of all color and creed called Cowgirls. The most famous being Dale Evans. However, the other woman in this museum achieved the honor of being the best in their chosen life style. The videos, clothing, photos, their voice, song and stories are amazing.... More

I had not thought about cowgirls since my youth, when a beautiful cowgirl named Dale Evans, used to gallop across our TV screen with a handsome cowboy named, Roy Rogers. When we stepped into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, in Ft. Worth, TX., yesterday, I was awakened to the past and present history of these stalwart, trail... More

When I first moved to the area, I followed up on a tip to visit the National Cowgirl Museum. I loved it and joined the museum. The second floor has a permanent exhibit that highlights the history and lifestyle of cowgirls. There are fun interactive displays, like a bronc to ride. It would be fun for young cowgirls or fans...

Too expensive for what you get. $5 just to park, $8 to get in. Takes no time at all to walk through. I will say that the clothes are well laid out. That being said, they could have added so much more!

...that do convey the pride in accomplishment through hard work and determination of women in many fields of endeavor. It mostly highlights rodeo performers, but we enjoyed the section which displayed music, TV, and movie entertainers. There is not an overwhelming amount of items to see, but there are some interactive exhibits that children will like.
