This is one of the best places to visit in Lubbock. Tells the story of the South Plains and life of early settlers. The exhibits are all original homes and equipment used in early Texas. Not only is it great for kids, it is for all ages. A must see while visiting this area.

Everyone that wants to learn more about our wonderful Lone Star State and early settler days should take time to visit this impressive Center. Having grown up in The Panhandle, there's so much here that I can relate to. The camps for kids which is coming up next week is a great way to teach this younger generation about how their ancestors experienced life as youngsters. My great granddaughter comes over from Albuquerque to attend this camp. She loves it!
Check this area attraction out first chance you get, you'll be glad you did.

I have been to the Ranching Heritage Center multiple times since I was a child. A year ago, we decided it would be fun to take the kids for their first visit. We had a great time, and the kids enjoyed seeing "All the old stuff" but it was really really hot! If you are going to go, it is a lot of walking and I recommend going in the fall, or early spring. Texas Summers can be brutal, and unfortunately there is not a lot of shade around the buildings. This is one of my best childhood memories, and it is definitely worth a visit, or 5.

nice outside venue along with the inside museum and old prairie homes and buildings from the area that have been saved and moved to this site.

Attended a special reception at this place. Really a unique place. Well maintained, very informative. Great learning facility for our youth, lots of history. Buildings on site, train exhibit really realistic. Wish I had experience it earlier on visits to Lubbock.
