The museum was Fantastic. I am not a person really into the ranch seen but I loved this museum. The buildings outside were moved there from the original sites. The train they have is unbelievable. I want to visit the museum again if I am in Lubbock.

This facility allows you to literally walk through time and see how early settlers of the area lived and worked. The landscape is well-maintained, and interesting to look at and walk through. As someone who enjoys learning more about life on the prairie and pioneer days, this museum is one of my favorites! Hint: Keep your eyes open! There are... More

This is not a bad place to visit, and the price is right, but it gets kind of tiring after a while. It would be better of there were tours given of the insides of the houses. It is definitely not the place to go on a hot day.

The Ranching Heritage Center was one of the first places we visited when we moved to Lubbock. We continue to take our family visitors from back east to the Center. They are always impressed. The Ranching Heritage Center really helps you see and fell how live was lived in the past. Highly recommend that you visit the Center.

We took our grandchildren from Chicago to see the Ranching Heritage Center and it was a great learning experience for them. Seeing the old period homes was fascinating to them and to see how people lived during that time period. We have been to the center several times and they continue to update the center with new and more displays.... More

This attraction is free (donation appreciated) and has a large collection of homes from frontier days from the area in and around Lubbock. Recommend it very highly!
