Looking for something new to do in Fort Worth? Check out one of these local museums you may not have heard about!
Second place is still something special. Just ask the Palace Theater Light Bulb, the second-longest burning light bulb in the world. Located in the Stockyards Museum right here in Fort Worth, you can view this everburning light – along with a myriad collection of other artifacts, photos, and exhibits – for a mere $2 entry fee.
This small but fascinating museum gives you a glimpse into Fort Worth’s past by telling the story of the city’s first and largest superstore, Leonard’s Department Store. Featuring photographs, memorabilia, regalia, and even a piece of the store’s escalator (the first in Fort Worth), this museum dedicated to the store’s memory delivers pure nostalgia.
National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
Established in 1975, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors and celebrates courageous women of the West and from around the world. In recent years, the museum has focused on honoring women of color “whose stories have been underrepresented in the history of the West.” The museum offers a number of galleries and exhibits that share inspiring stories about women who helped pave a path for future generations.
