Cowboy Gallery


Cowboy Gallery

About the Exhibition

Following a months-long renovation, the Cowboy Gallery features new videos, infographics, and hands-on activity stations. Discover a full-size chuck wagon and explore the tools and tasks of the cowboy trade—all showcased alongside a 16-foot projection of stunning Western landscapes from Oklahoma to California.

This gallery details the evolution of the cowboy—from the open range to the era of the Texas trail drives and ranching on the Plains. An icon of the American West, the cowboy represents the fusion of ethnic traditions and adaptations to Western environments that evolved on the American frontier.
