The American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum’s spectacular facility showcases the American Quarter Horse and the people who have committed their lives to the horse and industry.
The Hall of Fame & Museum has something to offer everyone. History buffs will enjoy accurate timelines and tributes to the role the American Quarter Horse has played in the expansion and settlement of the American West. Younger audiences will enjoy the hands on exhibits in the education gallery. The Hall of Fame & Museum is a place for horse lovers of all ages to learn more about the breed, as well as a quiet sanctuary in which to appreciate outstanding artwork depicting the American Quarter Horse.
Visitors approaching the museum are greeted by beautiful, larger-than-life bronze statues of history-making American Quarter Horses, including famous racehorse Refrigerator. Visitors can spend time reflecting outside at the Wall of Honor Plaza, honoring and memorializing the horses and people who’ve paved the way for the American Quarter Horse. The Wall of Honor welcomes visitors to the Hall of Fame from two unique perspectives. From the east, a light sculpture displays a herd of running American Quarter Horses; from the west, granite bricks preserve and pay tribute to the people and horses meaningful to generous donors.
Once inside, visitors can enjoy the Grand Hall containing the Hall of Fame inductees, timeline exhibits, art galleries, and explore the theater and reading rooms. Visitors can experience interactive exhibits that explore the internal structures of the horse and reveal the versatility of the equine athlete.
The American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum – built to preserve the past, honor the present and build the future of the American Quarter Horse – is a destination for the Texas traveler and horse enthusiast alike.
