  • Summary (4/5): a somewhat small, but beautifully designed museum that offers a comparatively small selection of items complemented well with technology. For $12 per adult , the cowgirl museum cannot compete with enormous museums that have multiple exbibits and a hoard of historical artifacts. Yet, the pieces that they do have are well complemented by digital imagery and mini hologram videos. It provides a good overview of the contributions and accomplishments of various cowgirls and the addition of a free photo booth and mechanical bronco is a pleasant surprise. However, the narratives of various cowgirls are not as cohesive as I'd like, and the fact that parking is a flat $10 makes it value diminish.
  • Smaller museum but EVERYTHING was top notch! Ingid was very kind and helpful. Wonderful art and artifacts depicting women in western/cowgirl life.
