Learn About the Longhorn

Many of our visitors and guests may be unaware that the original bloodline of Texas’ famous Longhorn Cattle actually originated right here in League City, and that the breed was once on the verge of extinction. Through a rigorous documentation process, the Butler Longhorn Museum has preserved the fascinating multicultural heritage of our town via the stories of some of the original ranchers, farmers, and their families.

At the museum, you can view a myriad of artistic, historical, and scientific exhibits to explore the seven bloodlines of Longhorns, and to come away with a vivid learning and cultural awareness of this era of the American West. You’ll also find an impressive collection of Western art and artifacts, along with the biggest longhorn skull collection in the world. You’ll also learn more about the history of League City itself, a town whose history began long before the Civil War. After you’ve seen the exhibits, be sure to tour the lovely museum grounds and Heritage Park.
