We were wandering around Medora and stopped in at the Cowboy Hall of Fame, located close to the entrance of the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Other than the old TV Westerns that we grew up with (e.g., Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Bonanza), we really don't have any vested interest in the cowboy scene, but found this museum well worth... More

I was pleasantly surprised about the high quality of the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.

I also... More

Interesting museum featuring North Dakota cowboys and history. Enjoyed it, upstairs they had 'scrapbooks' of the hall of fame cowboys and their stories/histories. That was pretty cool.

Learn about the cowboys and the way of life for all of the days gone by. This is an awesome museum that should not be missed. The pictures are beautiful and show so much. It is easy to walk around and the artifacts are amazing. Enjoy this important part of our history.

We spent an hour or so, you begin with a short film that sets you up for your self tour through the museum. They had a lot of local western memorabelia.

We spent a couple of hours here. Liked all the saddles and other cowboy memorabilia. A lot of reading - biographies of the cowboys and other stories.
