I used to go shopping at Leonard's Dept. Store when I was a kid with my mom and grandma. It was fascinating to go on the subway into the store. They always had lots of demos going for knives, pots & pans, sewing, cooking, etc....More

this museum brings back many memories of Leonard's and the subway they use to have. Free to visit and adjacent to the M&O Cafe, while there stop in and have a bite. Prices are mid range.

A cool museum that is an accurate blast from the past of Fort Worth. The grill has variety of burgers and fries. I ordered the tomato basil soup (bowl was about $8) and it was worth it. Will go back.

As other reviewers, we were a bit hesitant to visit. I am glad we did. It really brought back memories of family visits to the first Fort Worth superstore. The attached cafe was a pleasant surprise. Try their cheeseburger.
