Oakdale Cowboy Museum Reviews
A nice little cowboy museum. May 21, 2011
This rather small museum is a part of the old railroad depot in downtown Oakdale, California. Most of the memorabilia is leather, including many locally made saddles that helped win rodeos. Cowboys have been a big part of this area for the last hundred years and the walls here are filled pictures and items that they used. A second room is set up with special displays, right now featuring sculpture Jo Mora. He did some very fine cowboy works in bronze, plaster, marble and wood, and a few of his smaller pieces were on display here. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am til 2 pm., and there is a $1.00 entry fee. Photos are allowed. This one is not in the same class as the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma we visited back in May of 2008, but not as expensive either. More here about the local cowboys and their efforts and rodeo skills in this area.
