Get a guide otherwise it is just another building. Go to the Tourist Bureau across the street and for $7 take a tour of the stock yards. This building is rich in history but you can't get the full impact with out a guide. Though rich in history it is still functioning today as a livestock auction headquarters. Fun. Go.

I have lived in Texas before, but never had a chance to visit here before. The cattle down the street was a blast and the rodeo that night was great.

We came in this building and milled around the shops and exchange after we took the stockyards tour on 12/23. In addition to the exchange there are law offices and other businesses using space in this building. Part of the old stock pens are still visible and you acan walk around outside this building.

Although the building is still used for business, it houses the Stockyards museum. Inside you will find items and history of the Stockyards, rodeos and Ft Worth itself. In addition, it houses the "second" oldest continuing burning light bulb.

If you in the Stockyards vicinity you must call in here to get a sense of the history. You can peek in the windows and see the current lawyers and auctioneers offices.

The cattle show is very fast and over quickly. Hardly any time to take pictures. Too many people in the way and the heat was almost unbearable.

Interesting to tour, on the weekends they normally have live musicians out front for everyone to see, in the back of this building in the pens they normally have animals for your kiddos to see and some sort of demonstrations going on that you can watch.
