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.

In addition to the wonderful western art collected by the founder of this greeting card company and housed in a museum at the site, we thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour. In 45 minutes (which sped by) we learned about how the company was founded and how greeting cards and some other items are printed, packaged and distributed. When we went... More

Having been involved in Western, and Southwest art for most of my life, I have been to a lot of art museums. I was somewhat skeptical of a western art museum owned by a commercial enterprise, but I was in Boulder and I figured why not? Was I surprised. This is a serious art museum. After spending several hours at... More

We travel to Colorado regularly (we're from Manitoba). We never miss a visit to Leanin Tree. Love the art and always stock up on greeting cards! Beautiful and well worth the time to get there.
