The King Museum is so chock-o-block full of Western memorabilia that you could spend all day in there. It's not a "look through the glass" kind of place; you can run your hands along a saddle dating from the 18th century. It's a saddle-makers heaven. Gotta check it out.

It was really interesting to see this store. Had heard about "King Ropes" for a long time & wanted to see where they came from.

never saw so many saddles and ropes in one place. Lots of very old saddles, many by historic saddle makers. Wish there had been more history with the saddles. There was some on some saddles but not all. Interesting display of leather working tools and of tooled purse and leather guitar case. It was a interesting museum and retail store.

This museum had every conceivable saddle hand made and designed by the originators of the Sheridan style leather carving. The exhibits were marvelous to look at and unbelievable that people could have that amount of talent.

You might have seen the characters on Longmire wearing a King Ropes hat, or if you have been to any rodeo you have probably seen one. Well this is the place where they are made. You can see ropes being made and on weekdays you can see Mr King making amazing leather products. The museum is free and has an... More

So much to see in there, lots of history. A person could spend hours in there and still see something new every time. It's really great to watch the leatherworking if you happen to catch it.

The rope selection is mind boggling. The museum is very interesting. We were able to watch some tooling being done. Nice selection in the store.
