A proud tradition continues in a new location in the Fort Worth Stockyards, preserving priceless stories for generations to come.

Stories of the Texas cowboy have captured the imagination of people all over the world – and they are the heart of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum. 


Since 2001, we’ve remained a popular attraction in the Fort Worth Stockyards, attracting more than 60,000 visitors and educating over 30,000 schoolchildren each year.


Now, we’ve hit the trail to a new home: the Exhibits Building in the Stockyards, located on Rodeo Plaza between Exchange Avenue and Stockyards Boulevard. We are next door to Cowtown Coliseum and steps away from Billy Bob’s Texas. 


Going forward, we have plans in place to make the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum more engaging, educational and entertaining than ever before.   But while we’re settling into our new space, we’re featuring:


The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame  – telling the remarkable stories of more than 145 great Texans, including award–winning musician, author and rancher Red Steagall; rodeo commentator and television personality Pam Minick; cattle rancher and celebrated baseball player Nolan Ryan; 23-time world champion roper Trevor Brazile; Grammy award-winning musician and champion horseman Lyle Lovett; and many more influential Texans.  The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees represent the best of Texas in the fields of rodeo, business, western promotion, entertainment, ranching and agriculture.


The John Justin Trail of Fame – celebrating the life of the legendary bootmaker who built a company known for enduring quality.


Gift Shop – offering a big variety of western apparel, jewelry, accessories, souvenirs, books and more.


Jersey Lilly Photo Parlor - where you can get a vintage-style photo with period costumes and authentic backgrounds.



Reimagining the past with for a better visitor experience


With the help of expert museum designers, we’ve created plans to greatly improve the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum.  The reimagined museum will feature an inspiring new floor plan with interactive technologies, audio-visual exhibits, eye-catching displays, the wide-ranging Sterquell Wagon Collection and several old favorites from our former location.


We’re currently conducting a fundraising campaign to make this vision a reality. To find out more or make a contribution, please email or contact us at 817-626-7131.
