Stockyards Museum, Fort Worth Reviews - Write a Review
Great place to learn about the history of Texas's cattle-raising. Really helpful and friendly staff eager to help explain things. The museum itself is more like a one-room gift shop, but there are good exhibits of vintage equipment from the city's days as a meatpacking capital. Behind the building are actual stockyards where you see see longhorn cattle, mostly steers. The building itself still houses offices and some cattle-auctions are based there, though much of the trading is online instead of in-person.
This museum is a small gem. For the small cost of $2 it holds a wealth of information. You can even pick out a cowboy hat to wear as you sit on a saddle to make your own pictures at no extra cost.
First time attending, nice museums to walk through, children loved the maze, interesting cattle drive
It's nice to smell cattle droppings. $5 for pictures on top of longhorns and $2 for petting zoo where we can pet goats, and $7 for small horse riding if your weight is less than 100 lbs. Many stores with a lot of products made in China. We enjoyed the march with longhorn cattle, cow boys and cow girls at 4:00 p.m. Food is ok worth the experience.
This is where FORT WORTH got the nickname "COW TOWN" IT used to be "PANTHER CITY" because it was so quite a panther could walk the streets & no one would notice.
