Many inductees into the hall of fame are posthumous, such as Lloyd Cyclone Smith, depicted to the right. There is no restriction on age, gender, class, or ethnic background. If you know someone who should be inducted into the hall of fame for their work on a ranch or as a competitive cowboy, consider nominating them. Nomination documents are available at the museum.

With the support of the British Columbia Cowboy Heritage Society, the museum maintains a number of exhibits that contain artifacts, photos, and narratives of the hall of fame members. These artifacts include ranching equipment, tools, saddles, spurs, brands, and trophies.
