When in Medora, we visited the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame. Lots to see here. Cowboy everything. Boots, hats, saddles, latigo, settings, belt buckles, rodeo stars videos and interviews. It showcases the wild west, ranching and rodeos. The legacy of the American West is evident here in person. There is an entry fee; $9 adult, discounts for 62+ students... More

A lot of items from the 1800's. Some really large buffalo horns and the short video was very interesting. I would visit it again if I was in Medora!

This museum is very well done, tells the story of the early and cowboys. The rodeo Champions and they winnings. Also lots of cowboy history is told in this museum. Learned lots about the natives. This is a very interesting place to get lots of early history.

If you're into history, like reading about history and like looking at historical items, this place is a must see. It was interesting (and I'm not a history buff) and I'm glad I saw it but I'll never go back. It's the old saying of "you have to see it once" kind of place. The cost isn't bad and you... More

I learned new things and really enjoyed my time here. I found out some history I NEVER read in my school books... The great homestead give away was not free land but a broken treaty with the Lakota.

Had it not been pouring rain (not to mention lightning and thunder!), my wife and I would have been out on the trails in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. But, that being unwise, we decided to visit this museum in Medora. I am by no means a "cowboy" enthusiast. But, I think that this museum is inappropriately named because it is... More

Nice exhibits that cover the life of a cowboy with several areas of focus, including ranching, rodeo, and Native American. Plenty to see on the main floor. 2nd floor was open, but was probably more suited to organization members.

This was so cool, we walked through and learned so much are children were just as much into this as they were the shoot out that happen before we come in.
