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

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!

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.
