Leonard’s Department Store Museum is a living relic still standing in Fort Worth, Texas. Founded in 1918 as a simple grocery store, operating all through the 70’s, Leonard’s was a place that catered to all your needs – from groceries to furniture, sporting goods, etc. When they were flourishing, they had the world's only privately owned subway, the "M&O". The museum stands as a dedication to that supermarket, with pictures of the employees and old store advertisements still preserved. An old popcorn machine and bits of the very first escalator used in the store also feature among the many memorabilia associated with the Leonard's Department Store Museum, an iconic attraction that withstood the test of time, as Fort Worth evolved.

Leonard's Department Store Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • I should point out that the restaurant next to it is how you will enter the museum, and there you can get a drink before seeing the museum after checking out the area nearby (plan on coming here if you drive into Ft Worth for any reason, as most places will be right along side this location.) It's a very intriguing glimpse into a time in retail that seems to forget that Walmart wasn't the first "one stop shopping center." I highly recommend looking through the photos and newspapers (advertisements and news articles about the company) and realize that no matter how successful a company is, it's days will eventually come to an end, even when they had a business model that wasn't too different from more modern companies (admittedly the subway transport system confuses me still. . . and I wasn't able to get a good idea of how that worked, but I suspect it might have compromised their business with people relying more and more on private transportation instead of public transit, with people increasingly moving to suburban areas.) Also, Ft Worth has been greatly effected with business moving more towards Dallas after the cattle industry relied less upon trains and more on trucks.

  • Really cool small place wish i could have seen the original Leonards

  • Employees friendly. Food was outstanding.
