We enjoyed our visit very much. We took advantage of the complimentary audio tour that was included with the price of admission. It was a nice supplement to the exhibits. We were there for about 2 hours. Learned a little more about the western way of life and of the town. Time well spent. The art exhibits were very good... More

This museum is extraordinary in every way. Two buildings and it takes two hours of viewing to do it justice.

On our tour through the South West we were very charmed by this little town, its inhabitants and especially this little museum. While traveling the region you wonder what life must have been like for these pioneers, how people coped those days and you'd like some insight on the Indian population living in the region. This museum tries very well... More

The artworks of the "Rancher Women" from all over the southwest was inspiring as well as beautiful; many types of medium. All artists on display were also part of the FIRST EVER Rancher Women poets, singers, musicians and artists event.

Much higher quality than I expected from a small town. Amazing Western art and sculpture. Delightful staff, volunteers I think, were on hand to make it an even more interesting experience.

What makes this place special is the group of women that run it, think of your favourite teacher, multiply by 4 and you're getting close. At every turn in this charming and informative museum someone was there to tell a story, explain an exhibit or offer cultural insight. And for the moments in between there's an audio tour. A couple... More

This museum is really interesting. I love the fact that you are provided a head set that provides audio commentary on different art and the history of Wickenburg. It's worth the trip out to the cute little town.

This was the main purpose of our visit to Wickenburg and it exceeded our expectations. Great art and sculpture by some of the legends of Western art, like Remington and Russell. Two buildings ( one is 2 stories ) loaded with artifacts and period street and home scenarios. By all means take the audio guided tour ---it explains so much... More

Wickenburg is a fun small town with a great Western collection at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. From well known artists, to those not so well known, to a gallery filled with historic artifacts of life in Wickenburg, this is a great place to spend an afternoon. If you're shopping, be sure to browse the Gift Shop--it's not huge, but... More
