I really enjoyed the photos of all the 'old-timers' upstairs. We live on the 777 Ranch that JM Buckley lived on. Love the history! Lots of rodeo and Indian history too.

This is my second visit to this great museum. I spent about two hours there and could have stayed a little longer. There were lots of informative information about the cowboys, native Americans and early settlers in the region. It makes me proud to say that I was born in North Dakota.

Interesting museum. Very informative with lots of detail. Could spend an hour or several hours there. Enjoyed the "movie" and history of the area and of the real ND cowboys.

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. There is a lot of good exhibits, nice cowboy style statues outside the msueum, as well as a very good write up on the various people (Rodeo stars, history, etc.) who make up the history of North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame. I also... More

We had planned to spend one day exploring the South Unit and another the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but road closing in North Unit left us with quite a bit of time on our hands. Medora offers few choices, so we decided to stroll from our hotel to the nearby ND Cowboy Hall of Fame to kill... More

I am from the East and know nothing about cowboys, but I really enjoyed this museum. It is well done-very interesting exhibits. Big enough to learn things, small enough to be in and out in an hour or so (longer if you are cowby-knowledgeable)

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.

We weren't really impressed. It's just a museum really, the only draw is that it's air conditioned. The entrance fee was quite pricey for what you actually get.

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.
