    American Quarter Horse Museum - Amarillo, TX

    This museum is either recently renovated or newly constructed. All of the exhibits are in like-new condition. The lower level has hands-on areas for children and adults alike to learn about horses in general and American Quarter horses in particular. The upper level have various memorabilia covering the various association presidents over the years. This area is probably of primary interest to association members or AQH aficionados. There is also a small corral where presumably there are live horse demonstrations, but we did not witness any during our visit.

    The cost is $4 for adults and $2.50 for children 6-18.

    If you like horses, this is an interesting family museum. Plan on spending 1-2 hours.

    This is a gathering place for horse outfitters along with a museum honoring one of the most important breeds of horse to the history of the west. There are interesting and informative displays inside and some neat sculptures outside. Photo 3 is a fairly well known sculpture called "The Finalist" by artist Jim Reno. Hours are 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday (add 12 PM to 5 PM on Sunday during the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day). Admission is $6 for adults.

    This features quarter horses, their fame and pride. as well as those that train, breed, and race the horses. This is a large place, but only has 20,000 average people showing up annually.
