The colorful history and equally colorful legends of professional rodeo live on at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy. Visitors are greeted by the larger than life statue of The Champ, the legendary Casey Tibbs aboard the famed saddle bronc, Necktie. Inside, guests start their tour in the Hall of Champions displaying over 300 inductees. Inductees include rodeo contestants from bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, team roping, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, and all-around and also stock contractors, clowns, rodeo notables, livestock, and rodeo committees. Visitors then continue their way through displays that detail the changes in saddles, chaps, hats and other rodeo equipment over the decades.

Rodeo is truly a sport born in the history of America. It is the heritage of a unique breed of men who brought civilization to the western United States. The American cowboy of the late 1800s gave birth to the original American sport – rodeo.

The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy was opened in August 1979 as an educational and entertaining museum designed to preserve the legacy of the cowboy contests, the heritage and culture of those original competitions, and the champions of the past, present and future.


The ProRodeo Hall of Fame holds numerous public and private events throughout the year. Check out there their event calendar to stay up-to-date on all events at the Hall of Fame.
There are a total of five exhibits including Founders Hall, Heritage Hall, Hall of Champions, The Outdoor Garden Exhibit, and the 101 Gallery. In addition, visitors to the Hall of Fame receive an introduction to rodeo via a multi-media audio/visual presentation.

During the summer months, visitors can visit our livestock barn and get up close to retired bucking horses. Every year, the Hall of Fame houses bucking horses that were once fierce competitors.

Many professional rodeos happen throughout the year and throughout the country. Visit the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association to see if there will be a rodeo near you.
