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.

If you like western art and sculpture, this is the place to go. It' has two floors of tastefully exhibited art and sculpture, and amazingly, it's free! The outdoor sculpture garden in front is beautifully landscaped and has many benches to sit on while you're enjoying the sculpture. The museum is located in the north end of town.but is close...

I'm a native of the area, and after years and years of living here, I still didn't know this place existed.......nor that it was the owned by the card company of the same name. I have spent most of my life creating art, so I am very critical of art, but the details - OMG!!! One Bronze horse statue you... More

Visited on the recommendation of local friends. A small museum full of wonderful sculptures and paintings of the west. Some breathtaking scenes by Bill Hughes and others, some comic art, discount cards available, as Leanin' Tree is a card company. An hour or a little longer will give you a good amount of time to view the art and outdoor... More

Well, we like art, but are not frequent museum goers. We were delighted by this museum - classic Western art beautifully exhibited. Mostly, it's representational art, and some of the artists are masters in the use of light and dark contrast. A family would probably also like it. It's free and allot about an hour to go through. If we... More

The museum is unique with several large bronze sculptures outside, easily viewed off of a circular path. The interior of the museum has every media and style imaginable of all Western-themed art. Many many cowboys, western wildlife and Native Americans. The different art styles and media made it work, so was not monotonous. Went twice in one week to take... More

There are some absolutely gorgeous paintings of the western landscape: mountains, rivers, sunsets! The sculpture garden is also really neat and features a couple sculptures that you can actually climb on!

The museum was nice and you can go though it in about 20 minutes. The staff is pleasant and there is a gift shop. The art is not of the genre that I care for but there were three paintings in particular that absolutely took my breath away. If you have extra time it is worth it, if you are... More
