The experience at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy gives attention to educating the visitor regarding the sport’s historical beginning and offers an explanation of what the cowboy contestants must experience to become champions.
Visitors to the Hall of Fame receive an introduction to rodeo via a multi-media audio/visual presentation, then tour the following exhibits:
- Founders Hall recognizes individuals, firms and foundations that contributed to construction and research for the Hall of Fame.
- Heritage Hall displays saddles, chaps, ropes, boots, clothing and artifacts tracing the history of rodeo, and shows the evolution of the material over the past 100 years.
- Hall of Champions is the main hall where cowboys in each rodeo event are honored. In addition, stock contractors, clowns, announcers, rodeo committees, rodeo stock and other notables of the sport are honored.
- The Outdoor Garden Exhibit is home to the Priefert Arena where team roping events, convention rodeos, and wild west shows take place during the months of May – October.
- The 101 Gallery is used primarily to display Western art collections and other specially created exhibits that pertain to the sport of rodeo. Exhibits in this gallery are changed at least twice a year.
