The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum, formerly the National Cowboys of Color Museum and Hall of Fame, is a museum and hall of fame in Fort Worth, Texas.

History[edit]

The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum was founded February 1, 2001, by Jim and Gloria Austin of Fort Worth, Texas. Their objective was to recognize the individual contributions of many groups from the Western Frontier. Included in these groups are peoples Hispanic, Native American, European, Asian, and African descent. Many of these people have stories that only this organization will tell. The organization was renamed to its present name in 2008 to better encompass the varied history of the museum.[1]
