The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is a museum with more than 28,000 Western and American Indian art works and artifacts. Museum collections focus on preserving and interpreting the heritage of the American West.
The museum's collection includes over 2,000 works of western art including landscapes, portraits, colorful still lifes, and sculptures by 19th and 20th century artists. The facility also has the world's most extensive collection of American rodeo photographs, barbed wire, saddlery, and early rodeo trophies.
The museum also houses Prosperity Junction, a 14,000-square-foot (1,300 m2) authentic turn-of-the-century Western prairie town. Visitors can stroll the streets, peek in some of the store windows, listen to antique player pianos, and actually walk into some of the fully furnished buildings.
