About the Cattle Raisers Museum

In 1979, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) members formed the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Foundation (TSCRF.) Intent on preserving and protecting the heritage of the livestock industry of the Southwest, the Foundation’s goals included educating students and the general public as to the cattleman’s independent nature, pride in the free enterprise system, devotion to private land ownership and commitment to environmental stewardship. The Cattle Raisers Museum officially opened in 1981 to build a greater public awareness of and appreciation for our ranching heritage. The Cattle Raisers Museum’s collections include book and manuscript holdings, historic photographs, oral history interviews, artifact and educational collections which focus on all aspects of the history of TSCRA and the cattle industry.

Located inside the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History at 1600 Gendy Street, Fort Worth, Texas, the Cattle Raisers Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $11 for children ages 2 to 12, $13 for senior citizens (65+) and $15 for adults. For more information, please visit or call 817-332-8551.
