    I really was impressed with this museum, because it just confirmed what I thought of these Texas Longhorn Cattle. See, the Longhorn cattle didn't appear till the Spanish brought them over and the Mexicans from Mexico raised them. It wasn't till after the Mexican Revolutionary war that they were "abandoned" due to self survival that the "Texans" found them free roaming. "Oh chee, I wonder why?" Soon they claimed them and made their family fortunes from them.

    So the museum answered many questions you won't see otherwise, and it honors those who raised cattle and made Texas "King of cattle." It has many, many display and exhibits. Very special is Quana Parkers Head-dress, very touching to my heart. It has so many hands on displays for children and great exhibits explaining the importance of tagging your cattle for records and how important ranching is.

    The Cattle Raisers Museum features exhibits which range from Cattle Barons, Texas Rangers, Cowboys and Rustlers. The museum features the largest collection of branding irons in the world totally 1,000 pieces, some authentic ones from Stephen F Austin (a Texas pioneer), President Lyndon Baines Johnson, Nolan Ryan (famous baseball player) and John Wayne. The Museum is very much interactive with hands-on exhibits and a theatre presentation.

    Open Monday – Saturday 100.00am – 5.00p.m. Small Admittance.
