'John Wayne: An American Experience' Exhibit Opens

Fans can step inside the world of an American icon at The Fort Worth Stockyards.

 "John Wayne: An American Experience," the new interactive exhibit at Fort Worth Stockyards in Fort Worth, TX, is an entertainment complex featuring brands and experiences in the Western lifestyle.

All patrons will have access to never-before-seen family photos and correspondences, which the Wayne family has curated to give guests a holistic view of the icon.

Each room highlights an aspect of The Duke's legacy, starting with his early childhood and career. An extensive gallery, "Life on Screen," highlights film props and costumes. In the "America, Why I Love Her" gallery, visitors can immerse themselves in original poems recited by Wayne. 

In addition to the exhibit, visitors can shop at a 2,000 square-foot retail space, stocked with limited-edition items including licensed apparel, headwear, books, drinkware, fine art Western photography, leather goods and western accessories. Visitors will also be to try Duke Bourbon and other spirits at the exhibit's lounge.

"John Wayne: An American Experience" is now open to the public daily from 9am - 6pm.
