The actual cowboy hall of fame was not particularly interesting, but the museum was quite comprehensive and had informative displays about Native culture and life as well as about the white settlers' experiences.

This museum captures some of the history of North Dakota and the origins of rodeo on single ranches. I was pleasantly surprised. I would put this on a par with the Cheyenne Old West Frontier Days Museum.

This museum is adjacent to the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND. I would have given it a higher rating if I was a real rodeo fan, because the museum is very well done and is worth a visit of 1-2 hours....More

Besides the “hall of fame” part of the museum, there was a good overview of Native American and early western life. Highly recommend — can be done in 1 1/2 hours or so.

A beautiful display of artifacts. Loved the history about the American Indians as well as the American Cowboy. It's worth th $9 to get in. A person sold us a $10 raffle ticket from the Hall of Fame and we got the tickets free.
