“Not what we expected.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Visited this museum on a bus tour. The museum was more of an art museum. The photos of the cowgirls were good. If you had a cell phone to listen to the stories that went with the photos, it made the exhibit more interesting. There were some interesting exhibits, but just not what we expected after reading the reviews.

“A Great Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This museum was really interesting! It had some excellent photos of the women that worked as hard as the men at ranches. I was surprised to see that there were quite a few women that did trick riding and sharpshooting. You only hear about Annie Oakley. Very tough and hard working women and they deserved some recognition!

This museum is another one of Fort Worth's great museums. It is definitely one you want to visit on your trip to all of Fort Worth's museums. A great place for the kids as well.

“A Texas and American Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This museum and hall of fame is superbly done. The building and grounds are beautiful and thoughtfully designed.

I never knew that Sandra Day O'Conner was a cowgirl and author of children's books until I visited the museum. There are beautiful black and white photos of actual cowgirls doing what they do...roping, branding, raising kids, rounding up livestock. Some of these women are more gorgeous that magazine models, yet they are very real.

I truly enjoyed the section on Dale Evans, and they even had a short video on the cowgirl (Jessie?) from Toy Story Two. The museum is two stories with information and exhibits. Loved the section on trick riders as well. They things these women did just boggles the mind, and they performed in spite of injuries knowing that, above all, the show must go on.

There is a nice gift shop, and while things are a little pricey, I would love to have a few of the books.

This museum displays a big part of our American history and the women who helped write it. A must visit if you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area!
