2022 Hall of Fame Honorees Announced

ABOUT THE NATIONAL MULTICULTURAL WESTERN HERITAGE MUSEUM

Housed in the Fort Worth Stockyards at 2029 N Main Street, Fort Worth, Texas, 76164, and founded in 2001, the museum acknowledges the multicultural contributions of Hispanic Americans, Native 

Americans, European Americans, Asian and African Americans in the settlement of the American frontier. Works of artists and others who documented people and events of the time via journals, photographs, and other historical items are part of the Museum's collection of overlooked materials that tell, often for the first time, our complete story. Through various educational programs (e.g., storytelling sessions, "Forgotten Cowboys Tour," cultural heritage workshops, historical reenactments, participatory learning) at the Museum and in the community, the Museum shares our multicultural western heritage while instilling positive values of diversity, tolerance, hard-work, and determination. Visitors to the Museum and at our traveling exhibitions leave with an awareness that the American West came into being through the struggles and triumphs of racially and socio-economically diverse people.
