Was disappointed to see so much focus on people and not horses. Beautiful facility. Many videos did not work and we weren't told this at entry. Nice children's area. Expected more historical focus in movie instead of marketing. Could not find a single thing of interest in gift shop. People at next door corporate office were fantastic.

This is a beautiful facility for all horse lovers. Children will enjoy the interactive exhibits and learn while having fun.Adults will find the art and exhibits worth the time. We were even able to trace the blood lines of a quarter horse we owned when we were first married.

The first word that came to mind as I entered the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum was "Classy". I would rate this museum as one of the best in Texas and really tells you everything you would ever want to know about the American Quarter Horse. Beautiful inside galleries and excellent art work and sculptures outside. The... More

If you are a horse enthusiast, this is a good one. Wonderful art, great information about the history of the quarter horse, as well as their use in rodeos, ranching, and racing. There was also an extensive history of their genealogy. Very interesting experience. There is an admission fee, but it did not seem to be outrageous.

WE took our grandkids for a rainy day activity. They enjoyed everything about it. It is very child friendly and the staff were nice to kids and adults alike.

I had time on my way out to the airport to stop and tour the AQHA Museum. Interesting to look through the place, lots of history. I thought the bloodlines display on the floor in the main hall quite interesting. I paid $7 for an adult admission.
