The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Foundation’s mission is to preserve, promote and protect the rich heritage of ranch life and advance the future of the livestock industry in the Southwest for present and future generations.
The Cattle Raisers Museum is located on the second floor of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
The Cattle Raisers Museum is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the vital history and science of the cattle industry. The experience tells the story of the cattle industry from its origins among the West’s early Spanish settlers, through the heyday of the legendary drovers, all the way to today’s modern range technology. The exhibits show the important role Texas and Southwestern cattle raisers play in protecting natural resources as frontline stewards of land, livestock and wildlife.
Cattle Raisers Museum and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History can be found on the Will Rogers Memorial Complex located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District which is also home to the Kimbell Art Museum, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Amon Carter Museum, the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) and the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
