Canada: Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin is dedicated to preserving and promoting this ranching heritage.

It is the only museum in BC to focus on ranching and rodeo, and it honours both the cowboys of the past and the present. The museum is home to the BC Cowboy Hall of Fame and a special display area features photos, biographies and memorabilia of the province's outstanding cowboys.

Rodeo and ranching go hand in hand, especially in Williams Lake which is a major cattle shipping center and hosts a number of rodeos each year. Rodeo displays are featured along with the ranching history. While the museum focuses on the Cariboo Chilcotin and Williams Lake, it has an ever-growing resource library, and now has a video on BC's ranching industry.

The artistic side of cowboy culture is not forgotten. The museum features the work of western artists and holds a western art show each May. Recent renovations include a gallery designed to promote the work of painters and craftspeople. The gift store features western poets and musicians.
