Kids Take Over the Cowboy


December 05, 2020 to February 06, 2021
10:00 AM until 12:00 PM

This event occurs monthly, on the first Saturday of Every Month


Features a variety of themed, hands-on activities for kids to explore the history of the American West.

Monthly themes and activities:

  • December: Holidays at the Museum - Celebrate the holidays in Prosperity Junction, a turn-of-the-century frontier town. Make Western-inspired ornaments, meet historical Western figures, sample frontier food, mosey up to the sarsaparilla bar and drop off your holiday wish list with Santa. Find Howe and Dee, the Cowboy elves, to earn a special badge. Kids will have the chance to meet Santa.
  • January: The wild, untamed West was a place where women could often reach beyond what societal norms established back east allowed. They could often own land, run businesses and even vote in many places before the 19th Amendment. Celebrate the contributions of women in the West. Take your shot at the Annie Oakley Markswomanship Shootin’ Gallery, try your hand at some rodeo events and enjoy storytime at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Activities are free with admission for children while supplies last.
