The new ‘Elder Hour’ program will dedicate the first hour of business to Senior visitors at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

The Cowboy will open one hour early, 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. Monday – Friday beginning Monday June 8 specifically for Senior guests before the Museum opens its doors to the general public.

“Elder Hour is meant to provide our Senior visitors with the unique opportunity to come to explore The Cowboy at their own pace, especially those wanting to avoid the crowds during regular hours,” said Museum President & CEO Natalie Shirley. “The Cowboy also offers a clean and safe walking environment out of the weather, away from traffic and under the watchful eyes of Museum security for those wanting to get their steps in and beat the heat.”

‘Elder Hour’ participants will also be able to explore the many temporary exhibitions including the likes of Warhol and the West, Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing (through July 5, 2020), the treasures of the Museum’s permanent collections and Liichokoshkomo’ (Chickasaw for “Let’s play” pronounced Lee-cho-kosh-ko-MO) the Museum’s new trailblazing 2.3 acre family-centric outdoor expansion.
