Truly a must-see, Don King’s Museum is one of the best western museums in the nation, showcasing a fabulous collection of cowboy memorabilia gathered during the many years of Don’s interest and business in saddle making. The collection is comprised of hundreds of saddles, wagons, chaps, spurs, antique guns, Indian artifacts and collections from every facet of the western life-style, as well as a variety of wild game animals.
King’s Saddlery began in 1947 after Don King learned leather tooling from his father, a working cowboy. King’s holds an international reputation in their field. Don is famous for the trophy saddles he built for the Rodeo Cowboys Association, and their rope business developed in 1963, houses lariats, floor-to-ceiling, coiled in all sizes, weights and colors. When visiting King’s; be sure to enjoy seeing the production of their ropes and custom leather products.
King’s still offer the personal touch, whether serving visitors of great notoriety and fame, or the working cowboy right off the ranch. The museum, located at 184 North Main Street in Sheridan, is open Monday-Saturday from 8 AM – 5 PM.
