RODEO QUEENFire Station No. 1, located in Downtown Sundance Square is not your run-of-the-mill fire station. This historic fire station is now home to a museum which preserves over 150 years of Fort Worth History.

The photo on the left is of one of the original Rodeo Queen outfits you can view on display at the station. As a past rodeo queen, (from another county) I thought this was particularly interesting considering my outfit back in 2004 looked nothing like this. It’s truly amazing to see treasures like this that have been preserved for us to appreciate today and see how our Western heritage has evolved! 

For those that don't know, Fire Station No. 1 is part of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History which is another of my favorites. Previously known as the Children's Museum, this museum is a whole lot of fun for more than just children! In fact, I cannot wait until the FWMSH opens their new exhibit, Grossology.  “Grossology: The (impolite) Science of the Human Body” opens February 25th, so mark your calendar! It will be the perfect place to take the kids during Spring Break, and I know the parents will have just as much fun as the kids.
