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.

I found it highly interesting to learn more about the early settlers and the way they lived. Do not miss the building with the branding irons. Advice: Take the suggested route to see the buildings and equipment in their chronolohical order.
