There's a charge to visit this museum but the money goes to support the AQH association. Lots of beautiful tack, historical things and more to see. Well worth the price.

Everything you every wanted to know about Quarter Horses and the old west. Wonderful museum and a place to spend some time as a break from traveling. It would be possible to spend a few hours if the time permits.
