Funeral Museum to Join the Rodeo Fun!

cowboy_funeralFew people look forward to funerals, but a lot of people look forward to the annual rodeo. So this year, the National Museum of Funeral History is hoping to jump in on that rodeo fever and attract some new visitors. Timed to coincide with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo this March, the museum is going to present an exhibition called Last Tip of My Hat.

The show’s big feature will be a custom-made pine coffin, on loan from Cowboy’s Last Ride casket company in Early, Texas, set amid a backdrop of a final sunset. “If boots and hats and roping and riding are your style, your last hoorah can reflect that,” says Genevieve Keeney, president of the National Museum of Funeral History. Visitors can also view the memorial folder from Roy Rogers’ funeral.
