Our daughter is going to school at CU, and we stopped by Leanin' Tree when we were in town for a visit. We loved it! It's in a quiet place -- tucked away in an industrial park -- but the contents of this museum aren't quiet at all. They speak volumes, really, and there's so much to see! I can't... More

I live in Boulder. I took my mom to the Leanin' Tree Museum when she was visiting me from NJ. She absolutely loved it. It was easy to find. Easy to park. Very relaxed. Nice gift shop. There are lots of beautiful paintings showing cowboys, Indians, horses, bears, western scenery, etc. Outside is a nice collection of statues and sculptures.

This is a hidden gem. It is housed at Leanin' Tree. You drive into a small office/industrial park on the outskirts of town. Until you get there nothing reveals that you are about to see one of the best displays of western art I have ever seen. This was my first visit and I was absolutely amazed. They have a... More

Just outside of Boulder proper, but the trip is well worth it if you are into western art. Their collection is well worth the trip and you can spend a whole day there.

Visiting this museum was such an enriching experience. The paintings and sculptures are just wonderful. We learnt a lot about Western art and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We have been buying our Christmas cards from Leanin' Tree for probably 20 years now and they do a great job. They have a very large selection of cards and you can buy the exact number of cards that you want. They basically have something for every taste. We can have the cards personalized and the address printed on the... More

Leanin' Tree is a company that makes western style greeting cards. This is their museum and what a great place to look at western art like sculptures and paintings from famous western artists. They also have a gift shop full of greeting cards and other souvenirs. When visitors come to town I bring them to Leanin' Tree first (free admission)... More

Incredible collection of western art, paintings and sculptures. A little out of the way near the Celestial Seasons' tea factory. But, wow. Extensive display of the best western art. Don't miss it if you're near Boulder. It's free.
