My husband is such a fan of anything "Western", and in the 1990's, when we were visiting our daughter, who was attending Grad School in Tucson, she brought him here twice. I had never been here before. Rex Allen's movies were before our time, but his singing is timeless. What beautiful ballads with meaningful words! Before we left, we bought... More

Step back to when you were younger and recall the old movies and the singing cowboy. Complete history of Rex, including saddles, songs, performance costumes and tons of photos!

We came here because my husband wanted to see the Cowboy Hall of Fame. We viewed the Tex Allen displays with an itinerary that the docent gave us to guide us through. When we came to the Cowboy Hall of Fame we were surprised to see that it featured local ranchers that were termed "Real Cowboys." In another room we... More

One of the early singing cowboy movie stars. Definitely worth the couple of bucks. Don't miss the statue across the street.

This museum was interesting more for my hubby than me...he grew up on cowboy movies, I didn't. Nonetheless, it was a great little diversion from the long road between Yuma and El Paso. Hours are limited but if it's open you'll enjoy it.

A nice trip back to our childhoods. All about Rex Allen and his son Jr. Lots of memorabilia - clothing, lobby cards. posters, glossies, etc. Nice way to spend an hour or so. Very inexpensive admission. Tour guide was very informative.

This museum is about Willcox native Rex Allen and his cowboy acting career. There is a huge collection of his movie posters, as well as many cowboy artifacts. I personally have not seen any of his movies, but I might have to look up a few after seeing this museum. Admission is only $2. Interesting for fans of old 1950s... More
