  • 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.

  • 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 small museum is a lot of fun. For just $2, it is hard to pass up. I'd definitely recommend going if you find yourself at the Stockyards.

  • Everyone has been very professional and friendly! Always have fun taking friends and family to see the the longhorns and cowboys/cowgirls.

  • I love going to this museum. The permanent collection is lovely and always nice to look at. The traveling collections are always awesome. The museum has programs/activities available during the summer for kids and adults. The best part about the museum is that it is free to the community to experience all types of art and subjects
