The colorful history and equally colorful legends of professional rodeo live on at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Our Mission: The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy exists to educate the public about rodeo, its history, and its impact on Western American culture. The Hall of Fame will also provide recognition to rodeo notables of the past, present, and serve as an inspiration for the future.

Each year more than 35,000 visitors tour the Hall, which offers exhibits that detail the changes in saddles, chaps, hats and other rodeo equipment over the decades. Hall of Fame guests start their tour in the Hall of Champions, which features exhibits on each event's cowboys, current champions, famous stock contractors, clowns and other rodeo personnel. They often finish their tour in the Hall's gift shop, which offers rodeo souvenirs, western clothing and PRCA and ProRodeo Hall of Fame merchandise. Located on a 13-acre site tucked against the foothills of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, the Hall of Fame is easily identifiable from Interstate 25 by a landmark bronze statue of Hall of Fame saddle bronc rider Casey Tibbs on the famous horse Necktie.
