I'm a history buff and I enjoy rodeos, so this place was a great find for me. You get to know a little more about Fort Worth and what characters lived here in the past.

Great little Museum on the Ft Worth Livestock area. The cattle drives on the Chisholm trail to the meat packing. Plenty to see, read, and enjoy a little bit of the 1870 to early 1900s.

We went to the Stockyards Museum. It is in a historic building. There is local history exhibits as well as history of the cattle stockyards.

Worth the very cheap entry to see what stockyards was all about before it became what it is today. Good mix of information. And in a fantastic building full of history itself.
