MISSION STATEMENT: The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors and celebrates women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience and independence that helped shape the American West, and fosters an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire. WHAT: The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring women of the American West who have displayed extraordinary courage and pioneer spirit in their trailblazing efforts.

Nice little museum telling the story of the cowgirl. Provides a good introduction to Buffalo Bill's Wild West too. Tickets are cheap. It's a good break from the Stockyards
