Second Floor Renovation
The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame reopened the second floor after completing a $5.5 million renovation that began in early 2018. As the only museum in the world dedicated to honoring women of the American West who have displayed extraordinary courage in their trailblazing efforts, the extensive renovation continues to explore the special bond among the horse, women, and the West, as viewed through the lens of many Cowgirl Hall of Fame Honorees.
