Lonesome Dove Permanent Exhibition

Temporarily closed due to COVID-19

Following recommendations for social distancing, we have temporarily closed this exhibition. We will update this page as conditions change.

Hats, bandanas, belts, and boots — the complete outfits of Woodrow F. Call and Augustus “Gus” McCrae (played by Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall) are just a few of the many “making of” materials from the legendary Lonesome Dove miniseries on permanent display at The Wittliff.

This exhibition from The Wittliff’s major Lonesome Dove production archive takes visitors behind the scenes of the Emmy-winning miniseries, with a look at props and principal costumes, set designs, costume sketches and production notes, continuity polaroids, Bill Wittliff's screenplay drafts, script pages, and his photographs, plus much, much more.

The Lonesome Dove Permanent Exhibition is open for viewing during regular exhibition hours.

Walk-in visitors are welcome — request your tour at the front desk. For larger groups, or if you’d like to give us advance notification of your visit, you can request a tour by visiting the link below.
