National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum



The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum’s name might be a bit of a mouthful, but its mission is fairly simple: to pay tribute to the Native Americans, Hispanics, Europeans, and African-Americans that shaped the culture of the American West. Founded in 2001 by James Austin Jr. and Gloria Reed Austin, the museum houses artifacts, exhibits, and a hall of fame. Exhibits outline the importance of groups like the Buffalo Soldiers and the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American WWII fighter pilots. Each year, the museum’s hall of fame honors a handful of inductees of all races and backgrounds, from Red Steagall to Juan Seguin to Bass Reeves. The museum also hosts a number of workshops throughout the school year to educate students on Western history, and a free children’s story event is held every Saturday morning.
