The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring women of the West, and from around the world who have displayed extraordinary courage and pioneer spirit in their trailblazing efforts. The Museum proudly celebrates living and deceased honorees who represent diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures.
It includes interactive exhibit galleries that feature artifacts of the permanent collection, a traveling exhibit gallery, two theaters, gift shop, and a research library and archives. Currently, the museum’s archives house more than 4000 artifacts and information about more than 750 remarkable women.
The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame reopened its second floor after completing a $5.5 million renovation that began in early 2018. As the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring women of the American West who have displayed extraordinary courage in their trailblazing efforts, the extensive renovation continues to explore the special bond among the horse, women, and the West, as viewed through the lens of many Cowgirl Hall of Fame Honorees.
