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.

This is a small museum but my daughter who loves all things cowgirl really enjoyed it. It is close to other museums as well. The gift store also has some great thing in it.

We spent an afternoon here. I went with 3 of my friends. We loved the interactive exhibits, and making our video on the 'bucking' horse. Ft Worth is an excellent location for this museum. Nice gift shop, also.

Having a long association with anything rodeo and growing up in West Texas, I absolutely loved this museum. The exhibition by Barbara Van Cleve "Hard Twists" was an amazing photography show. The bonus feature of the verbal tour using one's cell phone and narrated by Ms Van Cleve herself was wonderful. I was there several hours and didn't have enough... More

Fort Worth's museum complex is visually appealing and very well-stocked, and the cowgirl museum is a pleasantly surprising highlight. The lovely, well-designed building is nicely laid out with several different displays, all of which are informative with plenty of artefacts and fun stories. The museum is just the right size and the tone is also pitched perfectly and manages to... More

The museum was a little disappointing. I expected more exhibits and artifacts. We went through the museum very quickly. There were several films and two interactive exhibits, including a bronco ride and a photography area with a green screen. The interactive exhibits definitely made the experience – you can download a video of your bronco ride and purchase your photo... More

Displays were interesting, but nothing too deep. I'd hoped for a greater sense of tribute to the women who'd help settle the old west. But the intro film makes one proud to be a woman, and the wall of Texan women who've contributed to society overall was very fun. Some of the displays were really fun, especially the Hollywood cowgirls.... More
