FORT WORTH, TX – The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is pleased to announce it has created a digital tour guide to support touch-free interaction. This tour provides visitors the ability to access audio and images that they otherwise would not be able to view or hear. The tours include Top 10 Must See Artifacts, and guides for both first and second floors including the Hitting the Mark: Women and Wild West Shows Gallery and the It’s Never Just a Horse™ exhibition. The Museum saw the need to create this digital tour as some interactive exhibits remain closed for the safety of our visitors, and the guides provide a great alternative while the Museum cannot offer docent-guided tours. A companion outside tour of the new Alice Walton Cowgirl Park is also planned for the late summer.

Through their shows, you can experience true, traditional island sound, award-winning professional mea hula halau dances, lei greeters, Tahitian drums, and even the captivating Samoan Fire Knife Dance or Fire Poi Twirler.
