The Cattle Raisers Museum gives visitors an interactive immersion into the cattle and ranching legacies of Texas and the Southwest.

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art features an unsurpassed collection of works – both paintings and sculptures – by two of the greatest artists of the American West: Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. Among the Carter Museum’s 45,000 photographs are 19th century landscapes of the American West, portraits of American Indians, and works by William Henry Jackson, Timothy O’Sullivan, and others.

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors the women of the West “who have displayed extraordinary courage and pioneering fortitude.”

Built in 1936 for Texas’s “Frontier Centennial,” the Will Rogers Memorial Center (Coliseum) is an 85-acre complex that today serves as the site of top equestrian, livestock, and rodeo events.
