Learn why this area was known as the "Wall Street of the West" at the Stockyards Museum. Located in the historic Livestock Exchange building, built in 1902, we are in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. The Museum features artifacts from the Stockyards and the Swift and Armour Packing Plants. You will also find saddles and other cowboy collectibles from the cattle drive era to contemporary times.
"Meet & Greet" with the Fort Worth Herd Drovers - 3:00 PM - 3:15 PM (Weather permitted) Walk to the back of the Livestock Exchange Building and meet the drovers of the Fort Worth Herd, who are dressed in authentic period attired from the late 1800's. They tell you what life was like in the Old West.
See the world's only twice daily Longhorn cattle drive at 11:30AM or 4:00PM and collect the Fort Worth Herd trading cards. Texas longhorns were the ideal cattle for the long drives because of their ability to travel long distances, swim rivers, fend for themselves and survive the Texas heat. Collect all 20 of the Fort Worth Herd trading cards to learn about your favorite steer! Visit the Fort Worth Herd Drovers in the Stockyards National Historic District to redeem your steer trading card.
