Museum & Park Hours

10am to 5pm, historical park closes daily at 4pm

Select Saturdays during the Spring, Summer and early Fall months the National Ranching Heritage Center has Ranch Host volunteers come out dressed in period clothing to hang out in the historic structures, answer questions, visit with guests about the history of the structure and work on period crafts. On these select dates from 10am to 1pm, our volunteers make the park come to life by providing guests with a unique visitor experience they can't get on any other day. The National Ranching Heritage Center is free to the public, but accepts donations at the door.

Wow! Great Historic Display.
Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating

This is a fantastic historic center. Indoor displays of the 19th century west and outdoor actual buildings from the period. Easy walking around at your own pace. Well marked with informative descriptions of houses and other items. Not to mention it is free. Children are welcome and sure to enjoy this too.
