Cowboys, Horses and Cattle!
Recommended by John Wayne
Mom took me to the Stockyards Museum. We got to see the cows with the big horns. Then cowboys rounded them up. That was my favorite part! We got to see all about the cowboys. I want to be a cowboy now! They had a fun job.
I also liked the old buildings. We went into the bar. I pretended to be a cowboy with my horse outside.
When we visited Fort Worth, I wanted to give Dylan some history while we were there. We stopped at the Stockyards Museum which is a part of the North Fort Worth Historical Society. They share the same building that was built in 1903 as a Livestock Exchange Building. The livestock sales ended years ago, but the museum opened in 1989. However, they still do virtual auctions occasionally.
If you have any questions while you are looking through the old exhibits, make sure that you ask someone. The volunteers know all about the history. However, they only answer questions when asked. They do not smother you while you enjoy the museum.
There is a movie and some old brick and wooden buildings which my son really enjoyed. We went into the bar and it felt like we were living back in the Wild West days.
Both my son and I really enjoyed the Stockyards Museum. I am trying to interest him in history and this was a good museum to try. He really enjoyed looking at the Longhorns and watching the cattle round up. We both enjoyed walking through the old buildings. I think the next time that we are in FortWorth, we will come back to the Stockyards Museum.

|Jacob Tip: Longhorns are so cool. The cow roundup is lots of fun. You can pretend to be a cowboy just like I did.|
