The primary objective of the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum and Hall of Fame is to offer visitors a true and complete historical perspective of the people and activities that built the unique culture of the American West. The work of artists who documented the people and events of the time through journals, photographs and other historical items are part of its collection. These long overlooked materials tell perhaps for the first time the complete story. The American West of today still operates on many of the principles and cultural relationships begun so long ago by the brave men and women who helped forge our nation.

For more information on Family Fun Day or the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum, call 817-922-9999 or visit www.cowboysofcolor.org.
