Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is at 1000 Chisholm Trail Pkwy. The history of the Chisholm Trail—the route used to move an estimated 5 million head of cattle between Texas ranches and Kansas railroads—is recounted through a multisensory experiential theater, animatronic Jesse Chisholm conversation, paintings, sculptures and a 245-foot Chisholm Trail walkway. Interactive displays allow visitors to make trail drive decisions, rope a steer, learn about early settlers and visit the historic Duncan store. A life-size bronze statue depicting a cattle drive is a museum highlight.
The Garis Gallery of the American West houses a rotating collection of bronzes, drawings and paintings depicting frontier- and trail-era life created by national and local artists, including Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Docent-led and self-guiding tours are provided.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
