Free! A step back in time! It is a walking tour and a long one, better be prepared for that. Great for families with children who need to run around in between exhibits! So many great things to see! You actually get to go into houses!!!

We visited the Ranch and Heritage center one morning with a 6 year old grandson. The trails lead us to homes and buildings from the past. Very educational! Our grand son enjoyed the outdoor hike, the stories that went with the homes, and he especially liked the locomotive, the loading ramps, and the train station. Hint to visitors....go in the... More

A relaxing walk through the ranching exhibit outside and always good exhibits inside. I have found nice gifts for out of town friends and family at Cogdell's General Store, too.

everything was great. Many things to see inside and out. Very nice little gift shop. Was there on a hot day but cool inside with some chairs to sit down.

The grounds are very well kept. We enjoy seeing the old ranch houses and the old steam engine locomotive.

This is a beautiful place to visit in the fall during Halloween season as well as during Christmas time. They offer fun nights for children. We have always loved the Ranching Heritage Center. You get to explore history in a different way, by actually walking through it. It is such a great collection describing the history of the South Plains.

Lots to see inside the building but the walking trail outside where you see how the early homes were built by pioneers and the progression as times change is great.

Lubbock offers little in the way of cultural attractions, but the National Ranching Heritage Center shouldn't be missed by anyone with an abiding interest in frontier life. The grounds offer a one-of-a-kind array of historic homes chronicling more than three centuries of Texas history, all lovingly restored and open to visitors to explore at length. There's even an entire railroad... More

My family has been visiting the NRHC since its beginning. We still see new items and exhibits when we visit. The vision has been expanded so well that we can see artifacts, read biographies, see audio-visuals that all tell the story of the ranching industry, particularly in Texas. I was always excited to see a new ranch dwelling be brought... More
