If you are an AQHA enthusiast than you don't want to miss this. You can spend all day viewing the history of the American Quarter Horse, and the people associated with them. A nice gift shop on location as well.

We are horse lovers so this venue was of particular interest to us. However the beautiful building and professional displays make it a must stop for everyone. I would say it probably isn't going to be something the kids would enjoy.More

Stopped as part of a bus tour. Not too interested in the horses, but the museum was beautiful inside and out. Displays were well done. Definitely recommend to those interested in quarter horses.

This is really a good value visit. Very modern and very interesting. Even if you have no love of horses it holds some interesting facts and displays. If horses are your thing, you have probably found heaven.

There's a charge to visit this museum but the money goes to support the AQH association. Lots of beautiful tack, historical things and more to see. Well worth the price.
