Wonderful outdoor sculpture garden. Western theme. There is a tour but we were too late for that. The artwork inside of sculptures and paintings is great. Nice gift shop too. Shouldn't miss this. Was recommended after our tea tour, by the tea tour guide. Thanks!

What a find! This free museum is a real gold mine: This is the history of the West (past and present) told through art. I walked away with a new appreciation of the history, culture, vastness and depth of the old and new west. The day we came was pouring rain, so we skipped the outside sculpture garden. Inside had...

There is an outside sculpture garden which we enjoyed. We just took our time walking the small garden and reading of the various sculptures. It was interesting and nice to enjoy being outside. We were there on a Saturday so the actual tour of the plant was not available but we enjoyed looking at and reading about the mass collection... More

This was a delightful surprise...went to tour the Leanin' Tree Card factory and found that they also house a wonderful western art museum! The tour of the card factory was informative and entertaining. Great products! The museum was expansive and has something for everyone, paintings, sculpture, carvings, etc. A wonderful collection and more than you would expect from the outside!... More

I think this outstanding collection would be better served in a setting other than a greeting card warehouse in an industrial park, but it's a place I've taken many out of town visitors and love to keep going back to. The artwork ranges from the majestic to the comic to the bizarre - a horse sculpture made of welded junk.... More

This museum is far better than we expected it to be. There is a well presented collection of sculptures, and the paintings of the West are extensive and include some notable artists. The gift shop is very good - lots of Leanin' Tree greeting cards available. Combine this visit with the Celestial Tea factory tour almost adjacent. A nice prairie... More

I was dragged here, kicking and screaming the whole way, in my head at least. It's not that I'm not a big fan of western "art." Rather, I loathe it and don't consider it to be art. I endured it in silence. Next time I'm staying home.

The next time I'm anywhere near the area this is a 'not to be missed' visit. The amount of items on display is amazing in a lovely setting - FREE. Even if you think Western art is a miss, don't be fooled. The level of artistry is amazing, inside and out.

The Leanin’ Tree Museum of Western Art is a great accompaniment to the Celestial Seasonings Tea tour is you’re in Boulder for the day. The Museum has both an outdoor sculpture garden and indoor gallery of Western paintings, plus an extensive gift shop of Colorado products and on weekdays, there is a tour!
