National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum might be quite the mouthful, but it is FULL of unique treasures from Fort Worth and our nation's history. It is the only museum in Fort Worth that is dedicated to the multicultural cowboys and cowgirls of the west. Come and visit the unique, historical accounts of how cowboys lived, dressed and saddled up in the colorful exhibit area. One-of-a-kind buckles, saddles and memorabilia are on display by World Calf Roping Champion, Fred Whitfield, Rodeo Legend Charles Sampson and three time IPRA Steer Wrestling Champion, Ronnie Fields.
The museum is perfect for introducing children of all ages to our nation's history. You can hear historians, meet cowboys, cowgirls and Buffalo Soldiers through special events, seminars and lecture programs. In fact, they even host Buffalo Soldier camp outs for Boy Scouts and are currently holding gardening classes at the new Pam Grier Community Garden (3534 E. Berry Avenue, Ft. Worth, Texas 76105). They've got an array of activities coming up, especially for the National Day of the American Cowboy in July, so stay tuned because you won't want to miss out!
Visit the Museum Wednesday-Friday: 12-5pm, Saturday: 11am-5pm (Free Children Storytelling 11am-1pm). Click here for more info on the NMWHM.
