This small, out-of-the-way museum is one of the area's best-kept secrets. There is a small, but impressive outdoor exhibit area with wonderful examples of western sculpture. Inside is an even wider variety of sculptures and paintings. The best new: it's FREE, although you will want to make a donation because you had so much FUN!

We were looking for somewhere warm to have fun when we stumbled upon this gem. We enjoyed the beautiful art and the kids enjoyed getting pics made with the structures outside

What a neat little museum. It was a bit cold when we visited, but still was a treat. Ironsides is amazing! Very clever, it was my favorite sculpture. There were a couple pieces that we were allowed to climb and touch. There is a museum inside as well.

Lots of western themed bronzes and a bunch of paintings as well. It will take an hour or two to look at it all. Celestial Seasonings and a chocolate factory are in the same area.

Don't leave Boulder without visiting this amazing collection of western art, absolutely beautiful pieces and so nicely displayed. They also offer a "unique" selection of cards at there boutique.

Nice little tour to see how the Leanin' Tree greeting cards are made. There's a sculpture garden outside and a very nice art museum (2 floors) inside of mostly western and indian art. Check out the paintings by Bill Hughes...they are amazing! This was all free and there's a nice gift shop at the end. You get a free card... More

The art here is a mix of traditional and contemporary western, and is of a very high quality. Sculpture garden outdoors is a pleasant surprise. Take the tour, if you already know about the printing process, then it will be nothing new. Nice small printing operation...large card selection. End of the tour you get a free card!

Great place to visit for western fun paintings and bronzes. They also produce cards from their paintings and bronzes. Closeby is Celestial Seasoning factory, and the Redstone Meadery

We needed to kill a few hours in Boulder on a rainy day and choose the Leanin' Tree Museum and tour. Most impressed with the western sculptures in the garden of the factory. Truly beautiful and amazing. The tour of the card manufacturing plant takes approx. 45 minutes. The price can't be beat - free + you get to select... More
