The Fort Worth Stockyards offers a variety of attractions, activities, and adventures for the whole family. The Fort Worth Stockyards Museum is the best place to start to get a better understanding of the heritage of the Stockyards and the role it played in the history of the livestock industry in the country. The Museum features an array of artifacts and memorabilia from the Swift and Armor Packing plants, the Livestock Commissions and both the Stockyards and surrounding Fort Worth, including a lightbulb that has been burning for over 100 years!
Explore the Stockyards on a guided Cowtown Segway Tour which comes complete with wireless headsets for communication and professional guides to show you around the area. Catch a show or a rodeo at the Cowtown Coliseum, a luxurious air-conditioned concert venue that exudes the rich history of the West. Other notable attractions in the Stockyards include Billy Bob’s Texas, Coyote Drive-In, Fort Worth Cats, Fort Worth Herd, Fort Worth Stockyards Petting Zoo, Stockyards Ghost Tours, and Stockyards Gunfighter. The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is not to be missed! The famous show features world-class livestock shows, PRCA rodeo action, daily live music, children-friendly exhibits, and a fun-filled carnival midway through the month.
