“2 inches of snow and it was closed”

Sorry not to be able to give a review but this was our first stop on a planned day of Fort Worth museums and galleries but all were closed because of a little snow. Texas you need to cowgirl up!

“pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2015

We first saw the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame when visiting the Science Museum of Ft Worth (they are right next to one another) in March of 2014. Unfortunately, we weren't able to arrange time to visit it last year so this year it was near to the top of my Husband's "Too Visit in Ft Worth". The Museum was under construction. It was a pleasant surprise, a combination history/art museum that pays tribute to the Female Figure in the American West; talks about the roles women have played and continue to play in Ranch and Western culture. Not a large museum but a pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Recommend to anyone interested in American West or Cowboy/Cowgirl life.

“Cowgirls and horses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2015

Museum honors and celebrates women from the past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience and independence that helped shape the American West. There is a big artifact collection. I saw Georgia O' Keeffe Exhibition in this museum. We could take a look into her life since the time she went camping as a young teacher, until her later years. Her personal things, clothing, letters, drawings and camping equipment were displayed alongside her artwork. Funny thing is that in one of the rooms there was a mechanical horse and you can ride him and at the same time make a video of yourself. Although it was tempting, I did not climb that horse.

“Not worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2015

I can not say there was nothing interesting there, because there is several great displays and cool stuff. With that said, it could be so much more! The cowgirls of the past are awe inspiring and there could be so much more to this place. The cost of admission and the cost of parking is crazy. The gift shop is so overpriced!!!!

“Not worth the price of admission....which was free”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2015

Visited the cowgirl museum while we were at the stock show. Admission was free with rodeo ticket. What amazed me was the lack of actual museum exhibits. Most of the museum was filled with student artwork submitted for the stock show. The cattle raisers museum next door was better but still not what I had hoped.
