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.

The National Ranching Heritage Center is an diamond in the rough... The preservation of history in this museum is phenomenal. Being able to walk through old houses and see and FEEL the history all around you takes you back in time. From the artful landscape to the detail of utensils used on tabletops one can tell much thought has been put into each aspect of this historic gem. Definitely a must see for those new to or visiting the area.
