Visitor Tips and News About Bolo Tie Museum
Recently redone, so entrance is now a block back from street address. Although they boast 250 bolo ties in collection, they only have 32 currently on display -- but lots and lots more to see.[Rae, 01/04/2010]
Next time you are in Phoenix, be sure to visit the bolo tie museum. Nearly a hundred bolo ties are displayed along with thoughtful commentary. You can learn about the Arizona Bolo Tie Society and how the bolo tie became the official state neckware of Arizona.
For you greenhorns, a bolo tie is a 4-foot length of cord that drapes around the neck as a western substitute for a regular men's necktie. The cord is held in place with a medallion of some sort, such as the ever-popular dead scorpion in plastic.
