I've been visiting this museum half a dozen times a year for about a decade. I live just a few miles away. What do I love about this place? 1. The art. It's captivating, and the collection represents many different styles and mediums from the realistic to the abstract, from paintings to sculptures. Everything captures some aspect of the West:...

Local friends of ours took us to the museum, and all of us enjoyed it thoroughly. Unlike some of the Western art museums we visited, this one had many new artists; the previous museums we've visited had mostly Russell & Remington. We really enjoyed being introduced to other artists in the genre.

This is a great museum of western art. It's good for a short visit or to do in conjunction with the nearby Celestial Seasonings tour. The two together make for a nice morning. Be sure to stock up on greeting cards, too!

This free museum is close to Celestial Seasonings so combining the two is worthwile. The art is beautiful and a walk through the sculpture garden can't be beat. A great place to take out of town guests.

I've been a fan of the Leanin' Tree cards for over 40 years, and my first visit to the museum was a treat. The courtyard includes a variety of bronze sculptures, including a life-size rattlesnake, and a burro for sitting and photographs. We visited on a Sunday, so the tours of the greeting-card operations weren't available. This collection is primarily... More

This is a fun Western Museum, inside and out. Quite an extensive outdoor bronzed life- sized Western themed statues. Inside many colorful cowboy and Indian paintings. Even a few which were painted by American Indians, but only a few. There are smaller bronze statues interspersed through out the paintings. There is an extensive gift shop with all the things you...

We were too late in the day to catch a tour, but we looked around the museum, card area, gift shop and sculpture garden after visiting the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory a few minutes drive away. Being that we were there late in the day, it was a little dead in atmosphere, but for free, it's not a bad way... More

Not just a great selection of greeting cards, but one of the best museums of Western Art we have ever visited! We will continue to visit everytime we go to the Boulder area. Should be on everyone's 'to visit' list!

Impressive free guided tour of the greeting card production area. Leanin' Tree started with western style Christmas cards created by 2 men with an idea in 1949. The family business grew to current production of 30 million cards/year. All types of cards are designed by artists who may submit their designs. Birthday cards most popular sellers, but Halloween card market... More
