Appaloosa Museum and Heritage Center

2720 West Pullman Road

Appaloosa Museum and Heritage Center was established in 1975 is designed to provide a self-guided exploration of exhibits that include a theater; a hands-on Kid’s Area; a library & archive featuring books, magazines, and videos; and the Apalousey Trading Post gift shop. Exhibits themes range from the early evidence of spotted horses in art and literature, to the relationship between the Appaloosa and the Nez Perce Indians, to the highlights of the modern Appaloosa Horse Club. 

The Appaloosa Museum welcomes school groups, home-schoolers, and youth groups such as 4H and scouts. Our standard program lasts around one hour and includes a short lecture followed by an exploration of the museum in small groups where students answer questions that help them delve into the history, present and future of the Appaloosa horse. Part of the program is a chance to sit on several types of saddles including a sidesaddle. We are also most willing to tailor a program to meet your specific needs.

Visitors learn about the history of the Appaloosa horse, which is as unique and colorful as its coat pattern. Exhibits explore the evolution of the breed, its importance to local Native American cultures, its role in the lives of cowboys, rodeos and circuses, and the history of the Appaloosa Horse Club.

It's a great family friendly little museum where you can learn about Appaloosa horses. They have special events there as well, our favorite event so far is when Santa comes to visit, that a really great free family event.
