“Historical Touring Exhibit” is the touring exhibit of the American Cowboy Museum.


This mobile experience travels to schools and community groups to educate and raise awareness of the rich cultural history that made Texas what it is today. This exhibit highlights the work of artists who documented the people and events of the 

time through journals, photographs and other historical items to include craft-making, quilt story displays, and the skills of horseback riding and roping of Black, Native and Vaqueros-Americans. 


In the exhibit, there are many items and photographs from famous and not-so-famous Black cowboys. These long overlooked materials tell perhaps for the first time the complete story and we recognize the importance of learning through touching, and reliving the experiences to help explain artifacts, photos and video about cowboy folklore.

Your Donation Will Help With Our:


  • Children’s Storytelling: The West African tradition of the griot is brought to life with area celebrities and other guest storytellers sharing the oral history through song, dance and poetry. Children are engaged with interactive activities highlighting the history of the settling of the American Western Frontier as well as discussing the modern-day sport of rodeo and other cowboy & western heritage entertainment. 


  • Hands - On Interactive Activities: Students, as well as adults, can add to their educational experience by participating in a variety of interactive activities such as leather crafts, quilt making, dance, drum making, matching games, folk and traditional arts and craft along with scavenger hunts.


  • Petting Zoo: Mollie Stevenson’s parents began the traveling petting zoo in 1950s to give African Americans exposure to farm animals at a time in history when blacks were not permitted at the local zoo. Many urban children still have limited access to the learning opportunity provided by interacting with animals. The traveling petting zoo brings chicks and chickens, playful goats, ducks, our adorable peacocks, turkeys, peacocks, and our magnificent Watusi cattle right into the inner city for an unforgettable experience.
