Oakdale Cowboy Museum

Oakdale Cowboy Museum

Upon entering the Cowboy Museum, one quickly notices the memorabilia that illustrates the lifestyle of the American Cowboy. The unique skills of the leather crafter are seen on the finely tooled leather saddles that surround the two galleries of the Museum. The action photographs that fill the spacious walls along with several personal collections tell the story of early western beginnings. The many tools of the rancher such as branding irons, boots, spurs and chaps are displayed for a “hands on” experience.

We hope you enjoy our work.
