Very nice history of Texas cattle and oil industries, interesting walk through time viewing restored buildings from early cabins to one of the 6666 barns. Also a really amazing static display of an actual stream engine with cattle cars next to loading corrals. My favorite was the very old squeeze chute! So much to see. They do not charge, only accept donations. Highly recommend this place. Make time to spend a casual couple of hours walking through the indoor and outdoor displays. You won't regret it.
A nice, calm place to visit. So many exquisite and lovely things to see. Creativity and art is always my favorite! The front desk worker was very informative and helpful as well. Their gift shop was small but they had interesting and cute stuff for kids.
