Armstrong Students Tour Cowboy Exhibits
College visits National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.

EDMOND—On February 15, Herbert W. Armstrong College students visited the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City for guided tours of America’s Old West. Students learned about life in the 19th century, ranch work, famous trails and legends, such as showman Buffalo Bill, would-be president Theodore Roosevelt and 20th-century actor John Wayne. Exhibits taught students about the topography of the West, its Native American tribes, its exploration and development by Lewis and Clark, Oregon Trail pioneers and railroad builders, and about life on the range: hunting, ranching and farming. Exhibits displayed the weapons, tools and everyday activities of pioneers and settlers. The museum also contains significant artwork depicting the natural landscapes and animals of the West. The museum’s art gallery includes sculpture, photography, paintings and other forms of artwork.
