Stopped as part of a bus tour. Not too interested in the horses, but the museum was beautiful inside and out. Displays were well done. Definitely recommend to those interested in quarter horses.

This is really a good value visit. Very modern and very interesting. Even if you have no love of horses it holds some interesting facts and displays. If horses are your thing, you have probably found heaven.

There's a charge to visit this museum but the money goes to support the AQH association. Lots of beautiful tack, historical things and more to see. Well worth the price.
