Description:The Stockyards Museum is located in the classic 1903 Livestock Exchange building in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District.

In addition, the museum is a highly respected resource for writers, academics, historians, restoration specialists and genealogists.

I grew up in TX and visiting the Stock Yards was not unusual. Over the years, kids have lost out on the bygone years. This is a great place for them to visit. There is much to do in the area.

We originally visited this little museum simply to escape the hot Texas sun during our first visit to the FW Stockyards. I'm so glad we did, this is such a great little museum! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable about their holdings, and it is evident that they are very proud of the local history and their dedication to preserve it. Their love of sharing these stories spark a desire to dig deeper into the history of Fort Worth and it's unique place in the history of Texas and the west.
