Robert E. Howard’s home
Robert E. Howard’s room – this is where fantastic worlds would be created.

Robert E. Howard wrote pulp fiction, poetry, prose, and is best known for creating the character Conan the Barbarian. Howard is credited for creating the sword and sorcery genre. The Robert E. Howard museum allows the visitor a unique experience to discover more about the author and his work within the walls of his home.

The museum is by appointment only – not rushed, very informative, and photos are encouraged.

A stones throw from the Howard museum is Woody’s Car and Baseball Museum.
