The Cowgirl Museum-have you visited

The Cowgirl Museum is the destination of choice for a group of us for an all girls road trip that we are planning. We are meeting up somehere central as we come from Newfoundland, Toronto (Canadians) and New Jersey and then making our way to Fort Worth, Texas, new site of this museum.

As you may have guessed, a couple of us have a burning passion for the subject, while the other two are just along for the fun.

The website is not big on details; anybody been there.Experiences: positive or negative? (BTW we'd be going anyway as Texas is a drawing card for us for a whole bunch of reasons, but we thought we'd play up this aspect for the heck of it

Is the Cowgirl Museum close to the Missionary Museum and the Spoon Museum?

LJ _ to me, the musuem is more geared for kids than adults, with lots of interactive stuff, though my guess is the ones who are really into the subject will like it very much. It's fairly small _ think you could do the whole thing in a couple hours pretty easily. The museum is in the city's cultural district, and the other museums there _ Amon Carter for American and western art, and the Kimbell for great traveling exhibits and antiquities (and a great lunch cafe) _ are also well worth seeing. (The modern art museum is getting a cool new building, but it won't open till december.)

Thank you all for your responses esp re: NY, we will probably meet up there for starters: I got lost for a couple of days...but had a chance to share the info with the other "cowgals" (one professor, one minister, one classics student, one fine art student and one actress). We are collecting info from all sources, but I knew Fodor's wouldn't let us down and the rest of the "posse" were really impressed with the detail.
