Opened in 1991, the Devil’s Rope Museum in McLean, Texas celebrates all things barbed wire. Check out the giant balls of barbed wire that flank the name plaques outside, then come inside to explore a huge expanse dedicated to the fencing. Learn about the history of barbed wire and its impact on the development of the Old West while browsing displays of different types of the fence wire, artifacts and examples, salesman samples, fencing tools used to make and maintain fences, branding irons, historical documents, photographs, and wire art.

While you’re at the barbed wire museum you can also check out the adjoining Texas Route 66 museum with vintage signs, a Texas map, photographs, a recreated 1950s diner, and a giant cow.
