An impressive & extensive Hall of Fame & Museum of historic & recent American Quarter Horses...great educational section on horse care/feeding/equipment and the important role of these horses, breeders & riders in the West. Nice shop, too.

Although I've been in Quarter Horses many years, the museum showed the wide range of jobs the Quarter Horse has handled over the years. It was so interesting to see the great horses of the past, and their many achievements.

I feel like I would've really enjoyed this place if I loved horses. It is really nice to look at though; you can tell a lot of work was put into the museum. Even though I'm not a huge fan of horses, this museum trip was still fun.

We just stumbled upon this place. The sculptures outside are gorgeous. The art inside is incredible. There are many hands -on displays good for all ages. We especially liked listening to and learning from Doc and Two Bits, the horse. Very inexpensive admission, worth every penny. $6.00/senior

This is a nice musem dedicated to the American Quarter Horse. Lots of interesting facts about Quarter Horses and their lineage that coincide with American history. There's some neat stuff to keep kids busy.

If you are a Cowboy or not, you need to visit here. The upstairs is amazing. Lots of history. If you are a horse person, this is a MUST Stop.

I have been to the AQHA museum twice now and have loved it both times. I am a horse person and AQHA member so I was able to recognize a lot of the people and horses in the displays so of course that was fun to go through. My husband knows much less about the breed but he loved it... More

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.

We chanced upon the AQH Hertitage Museum by accident. What a gem! The building is beautiful, the staff wonderful, and so much interesting information. We only spent an house, but wished we'd had the whole day! Highly recommended!
