This historic area is very interesting. The restaurants are fun but the food is only fair. The shops are generic.

This museum is full of historical facts which are fun to know and educational as well. Fort Worth gained its importance as a place where cattle were brought in and processed. A bit of Americana is preserved here.

Took a tour through this historic sight and saw some really interesting exhibits and photographs that gave a feel of the Old West.

Inexpensive cost (I think it was maybe $4) and included so many historical maps, documents, pictures, items, etc. that educated you about the history of the stockyards. Fascinating information, and I loved it!

We visited here during a family trip. It was full of interesting tidbits of history, and was also a small gift store, so you are paying to shop as well as learn. It was minimal though, and worth the donation to see such interesting stuff.

I found everything here to be really "touristy", but in a fun, cool way! Plenty to see at this museum. Lots of stuff packed in here. Explains the early days of the Stockyards and the architecture is amazing! You can also get your child's picture...More

The Stockyards Museum - 10-30 minutes. We read a lot of the museum labels and spent about 30 minutes. Others just did a quick walk through the museum. Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame - 60-90 minutes. We spent an hour looking at... More
