Cowboys have long been the heroes of the West. Tales of shoot outs, cattle drives, and travelling through the Old West on horseback always talk about the men in the saddle, but what about the women of the Wild West?

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth pays tribute to the cowgirls who helped tame the wild frontier. You’ll be able to see memorabilia and artifacts from historic frontier women and famous western performers, including one of Dale Evans sparkling costumes!

They are located at 1720 Gendy Street in Fort Worth blocks from the Will Rogers Memorial Center and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Make a day of your visit because your paid admission to the Cowgirl Museum will get you half off your admission to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on the same day!

The Cowgirl Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and Sundays from Noon to 5PM. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors over 60, and $8 for kids 3-12. Parking in the Cultural District is $5. Find out more information by visiting cowgirl.net.
