Founded in 1955, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is Oklahoma City's premier destination for all things related to the American cowboy. Upon entrance, visitors are greeted by a larger-than-life casting of "The End of the Trail," a sculpture by American-born artist James Earle Fraser that depicts an American Indian on horseback.

More than 28,000 artworks and artifacts compose the museum's extensive collection. Permanent exhibits include the American Cowboy Gallery, the Native American Gallery, the Museum of the Frontier West, the Fine Firearms Gallery and more. The facility also houses the world's most extensive holding of American rodeo memorabilia, such as photographs, barbed wire, saddlery and trophies.

Each June, the museum hosts the annual Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale. More than 300 sculptures and paintings by the finest contemporary Western artists are on display and available for purchase.
