Texas is known for its cowboy aesthetic, especially when it makes its way into movies. We can think of no place to have a museum dedicated to the extraordinary women who made their mark on our Texan lifestyle than right here in Fort Worth. The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall Of Fame is dedicated to commemorating the woman of the American West and preserving their legacy.
The museum has several interactive features on their second floor. Guests are more than welcome to design their dream horse and take a ride on the wild electric horse if they can manage to stay on. You won't only find things from days of old, the museum has been known to snag cool memorabilia from movies and TV shows including the armor Gal Gadot wore during the Wonder Woman movie as well has saddles from Game of Thrones.
Of course, the notorious Annie Oakley could not be forgotten, so the museum has a hologram of her sharing her stories with the public. They also have her wedding ring, handwritten letters and memorabilia from when she traveled around with Buffalo Bill Wild West Show. Sandra Day O’Connor also has a section in the museum of her own showing her transformation from cowgirl to supreme court justice.
Tickets to the museum are only $12. You can stop by for a visit any day of the week as they are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, they are open from noon to 5 p.m. We recommend checking their website for updates as they tend to have limited parking.
The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall Of Fame is located at 1720 Gendy Street. For more information on the museum, you can visit their website here.
