Corporate Sponsor Spotlight: National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
Come Visit The Cowboy
Founded in Oklahoma City in 1955, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum — or “The Cowboy,” as it is known — stands as America’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture, with a mission to “preserve and interpret the evolving history and cultures of the American West for the education and enrichment of its diverse audiences of adults and children.”
Since its founding, more than 10 million visitors from around the world have sought out this unique institution to gain a better understanding of the West: a region and a history that permeates our national and global culture.
The Cowboy collects, preserves and exhibits an internationally renowned and diverse permanent collection of Western art and historic artifacts. It also features a rotating schedule of dynamic temporary exhibitions and sponsors educational programs to stimulate interest in the enduring legacy of the American West.
The Cowboy features a superb collection of classic and contemporary Western art, including works by Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, as well as sculptor James Earle Fraser’s iconic The End of the Trail. The Museum’s exhibition wing houses an authentic circa 1900 Western town and interactive history galleries that focus on the American cowboy, rodeos, Native American culture, Victorian firearms, frontier military and Western performers. The Museum’s most recent expansion, Liichokoshkomo’ (pronounced Lee-cho-kosh-ko-MO), Chickasaw for “Let’s play!,” is a truly unique, interactive outdoor educational experience featuring waterfalls, Native American structures, a train depot, rodeo arena and a recreation of the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings. So whether you have an hour or a day, come immerse yourself in the myriad stories and experiences of the American West available at The Cowboy! For more information, visit nationalcowboymuseum.org.
