The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame honors those individuals who have shown excellence in competition, business and support of rodeo and Western Heritage lifestyle in Texas. The museum is located in Historic Barn A, in what was once the horse and mule barns of the Stockyards. The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is a great place for a Kids Event. Visitors see seven (7) exhibits for one, low, all-day admission fee. It is truly a treasure in the Stockyards National Historic District.
The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame honors such greats as: Trevor Brazile, Tommy Lee Jones, Nolan Ryan, Barry Corbin, Matlock Rose, George Strait, Ty Murray, Lane Frost, Buck Taylor, Tuff Hedeman, Quail Dobbs, Buster Welch, Charmayne James, Don Gay, and many more. Each Inductee has their own booth that contains personal photographs and memorabilia.
The Sterquell Wagon Collection, the "world’s largest lifestyle wagon collection,” showcases over 60 horse drawn vehicles (sleighs, buggies, carts, wagons). This exhibit provides a view of the past when green energy (horse-drawn) was the norm for all transportation. The exhibit includes a Sicilian cart dating back to 1750, a Welsh hearse and a variety of wagons that were used commercially and privately.
Combining Texas Culture and Western Heritage, the John Justin Trail of Fame pays tribute to one of Fort Worth’s own, who spent a lifetime building the Justin Boot Company and became one of the city’s most prominent civic leaders. Included in the display is a variety of boots, which were made for famous and not-so-famous customers, photographs of Mr. Justin, along with personal memorabilia.
