Very nice museum and right across the street next to the gas station go see "The Jail Tree". If you have a few hours take a walk around the whole town of Wickenburg there is a lot of stuff to see.

This is an amazing museum and wouldn't be out of place in a much bigger centre. They have a collection of original paintings and bronzes by western artists, some old and some new, and some you've most likely heard of, such as Remington. There's also a small exhibit on the town's history. If you've got kids along, they'll likely enjoy... More

This museum presents a fantastic depiction of history with fine arts and an old county village. I loved it. Dr. Deb

This was a pleasant surprise in that we had no idea a small city/town like Wickenburg would have anything of this caliber. Great original bronzes by Russell and Remington, paintings by so many well-known western artists, past and present. Also a very well-done local history exhibit and much, much more. This is the type of facility you'd expect to find... More

Enjoy this small town museum for its historical displays and top notch artwork. Wickenberg is the neatest little town around with great support from local area people. A lot of famous people have donated artwork, Remington bronzes and other objects to this great museum.

I have collected southwest sculptures and paintings for years and toured galleries in Santa Fe, NM, Park City, UT, and Scottsdale,AZ. On a casual trip to Wickenburg (about 90 minutes from Old Town Scottsdale) I entered this museum/gallery not expecting to see much. Boy, was I wrong! Wonderful bronze and clay pieces, oils, graphite sketches, and photographs of all sorts... More

My sister and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon here. We used the complimentary audio headsets which enhanced the tour because we were then given additional information to explain what we were viewing. I came away with increased admiration of our earlier western heritage and was pleased to see that it continues on. Everything was beautiful. .Please don't miss this... More

you'll love this museum in the little town of Wickenburg, AZ. Wonderfully laid out, you'll learn about the progression in western art, from the earliest artists in the 1800s to the contemporary work of today. You'll also get up close and personal with bronzes; most of them stunning masterpieces of ideas, emotions, and detail in both man and animal. Downstairs... More

There are three areas to this wonderful museum. Two are at 21 North Frontier Street in downtown Wickenburg where there is plenty of free on-street parking. The third is within walking distance about a block away. Once you pay your admission (AAA and senior discounts given), you will be given a guide to all three areas, offered a free headset... More
