We visited this art museum because the rainy day ruined our hiking plans; however, the day was not ruined because of what we experienced. The statues outside and art displays inside were worth the stop. There is no entrance fee, but one can purchase the famous cards in the shop before leaving. We brought some wonderful gifts including a 2015,... More

The collector of this artwork will be turning 90 soon. Mr. Ed Trumble personally chose/ purchased all of the pieces here, and wrote every description. The sculpture garden is lovely, with two pieces for visitors to sit on, and the 2-level gallery inside is the biggest collection of Western art I've ever seen. Some of the pieces were purchased early... More

The only thing I can truly say is the beauty of the western art took my breath away. The staff were very nice.

Wonderful art collection. Enjoyed the sculptures and paintings. Thanks to Ed Trumble for sharing his wonderful private art collection. Mr Trumble was Founder and Chairman of Leanin’ Tree, publisher of fine art greeting cards since 1949. I enjoyed the tour of the plant, however my friends thought it was boring. I'd like to know where the art came from for... More

Where I cannot even begin to call myself an art critic, I do love visiting art museums and enjoy them. This one exceeded my expectations! I love Western art and this is an excellent collection. I could visit this place everyday for weeks and still not tire of the place. The outdoor sculptures are wonderful and then you enter the... More

My family really enjoyed going to the Leanin Tree Museum. I loved the bronze sculptures outside, and the art inside was an impressive collection. You can also purchase Leanin Tree merchandise here.

This museum is adorable and expressive. I spent just as long in the two room greeting cards shop as I did in the art exhibit portions of the museum. It's all local art and amazing to see how varying artists represent similar things so differently from each other. Buy your greeting cards for the entire year here!

This is an amazing and extensive Western Art exhibit of a private collection. The gallery and greeting card factory is very close to the Celestial Seasoning Tea Factory so it makes a wonderful afternoon. From the art gallery...to the bronze sculptures...to the wonderful selection of greeting cards....don't miss this one! Oh and did I mention it is FREE!!!

We are from California and don't see too much Western art and this museum was such a treat! We spent the first half hour outside strolling through the sculpture garden- beautiful large bronzes of animals, Native Americans, and cowboys. Inside there are several galleries with all sorts of Western art ranging from majestic landscapes to humorous cowboy subject matter. Also... More

This museum is close by Celestial Seasoning and make a great companion tour. We didn't do the plant tour here but enjoyed strolling through the outdoor sculpture garden and then the art museum. A free tour like Celestial Seasoning which also has a gift shop for the Western Greeting Cards made by Leanin' Tree.
