If you have a bit of cowboy (or cowgirl) in you, you're going to love this place. I grew up around horses and rodeos, but I learned so much at this museum. It's huge, and so worth the small entrance feel. There are displays covering every aspect of rodeo - Bull Riding, Bronc Riding, Roping, etc, and small biographies of the cowboys who excelled in all areas of rodeo - from the early days of rodeo to present day. There was also a section on the history of rodeo clowns/bullfighters and biographies of many of them. There was even a section featuring outstanding bulls and horses in the history of rodeo. There is so much to see and read. We were there for over two hours. So make sure you allow enough time to explore this fascinating place!

We enjoyed going to the rodeo museum. It was fun to read about the different people involved with rodeos. Film was interesting as well. We parked in the free lot by the museum.

We stayed at the nearby Marriott, and thought we would give this museum a try. We know very little about rodeos and to our surprise, we learned so much. The museum gave us so much information and was so nicely done, we felt like it was a pleasant learning experience. We were there almost 3 hours and saw so many interesting displays, as well as a video. Definitely a day well spent.

This attraction is free and is very detailed and interesting even if you have never seen a rodeo. This short presentation on the history of rodeo and the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Assoc. is well worth watching. The amount of memberobila is impressive.

Very interesting exhibits. Lots of information & artifacts from sites that host a Pro Rodeo event. Hundreds of exhibits of inductees into the HOF, more than the average tourist can see before they run out of the energy to continue. A huge building with many exhibits.
