ABOUT NATIONAL MULTICULTURAL WESTERN HERITAGE MUSEUM

Housed in the Fort Worth Stockyards at 2029 North Main Street, Fort Worth, Texas, and founded in 2001, the Museum acknowledges the multicultural contributions of Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, European Americans, and African Americans in the settlement of the American frontier. Works of artists and others who documented people and events of the time via journals, photographs, and other historical items are part of the Museum's collection of overlooked materials that tell, often for the first time, our complete story. Through various educational programs (e.g., traveling exhibits, "Forgotten Cowboys Tour," cultural heritage workshops, historical reenactments, participatory learning) at the Museum and in the community, the Museum shares our multicultural western heritage while instilling positive values of diversity, tolerance, hard-work, and determination. Visitors to the Museum and at our traveling exhibitions leave with an awareness that the American West came into being through the struggles and triumphs of racially and socio-economically diverse people.

The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum 2020 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Banquet and National Day of the American Cowboy programs are sponsored by Linebarger, Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, Visit Fort Worth, BNSF Railway, CBS 11/TXA21 and Cowtown Coliseum.
