This is a small museum, housed in two buildings. One has art that is also for sale. The main building has a lot of Remington bronzes (and others), as well as many western-themed paintings. Downstairs are period exhibits of homes, stores, etc. as they would have been in early AZ days. Some are interactive and are hands-on, good for kids.

I did not expect such a fine museum in such a small town. This place is a MUST SEE in the area. The art from paintings to photographs are spectacular and the bronze work is phenomenal. There is also many re creations of hotel rooms, general stores and other historical areas of Wickenburg with real products and artifacts from the... More

This is the second time we have been here. It's a small museum with some beautiful Remington Bronzes and s recreation of old Wickenburg downstairs. Both sections were quite interesting and the art has both contemporary and Classic pieces. A small section focuses on history of rodeos, dude ranches, and mining which was very good but small. A must see... More

This museum is on two floors but there is a lift. Hard to describe the amount of detail, really drags you back in time. This is a must see place if you are anyway near. What was it like back then? HARD, but surprisingly civilized and (for that time) pretty high tech. Allow quite a lot of time to gently... More

Wickenburg is an town that was the site of the Vulture gold mine and this museum is a totally unexpected find. it is fascinating in that it has exhibits that run the gamut of art... More

The Museum is in two buildings with an audio tour available. The audio tour is important to an appreciation of the exhibits. The museum gives a realistic look at the Old West with paintings and sculptures by Frederic Remington, Albert Bierstadt, Moran, and display cases with genuine artifacts detailing the history and way of life of the cowboy and early...

This is a must-see museum and art gallery/museum in the Valley of the Sun encompassing Greater Phoenix and northern Arizona. We always bring visiting friends and relatives and have gone to see what was new and interesting on our own many times. There's always something new to take in. The next art exhibition...CowgirlUP (hundreds of female artists from across the... More

I definitely recommend this as part of the Wickenburg experience. It is in two separate but close buildings, both of which offer artifacts, art, and insights into the history of this little town. With admission you get a ticket which gets you into the other building, and also lets you take a break for lunch or whatever and get back... More

Last visited here 20 years ago, and we were in for a big surprise. The museum is about evenly split between historical displays (Wells Fargo, pioneer home, mining) and art. The headphones worked great (free). The art exhibition was unexpected and very very good. Comparable to the Western Wildlife Museum near Jacksone, WY. A nice variety of art - some... More
