The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy is the only heritage center in the world dedicated to the sport of professional rodeo. Since 1979, we have been honoring the sport’s outstanding athletes, livestock, personnel, committees and notables for their achievements in and their contributions to professional rodeo. Now celebrating our 40th anniversary and as the only facility of its kind, we are in a unique position to educate the public about professional rodeo, to honor our sport’s greatest, to preserve the history of the sport and to keep the western heritage alive and well through displays, exhibits and educational programs.
