This is a small, very specialized museum. There is some interesting old artwork and Western artifacts. Call ahead to be sure it is open.

If you know Red Ryder and Little Beaver, you will love this small museum for all its art and history relating to this comic strip. But it is just as interesting for people who just have an interest in the Old West. The paintings and other collectibles on display are a joy. The docents are well informed and enthusiastic. If...

Don't let the outside fool you. The museum has most of Mr. Harman's paintings. They show a CD with a narrative about many of the paintings which I found to be most informative.

Small museum about Fred Harman including his art work and comic strip, Red Ryder. $3 admission well worth it. Well informed guide showed us around. Interesting and fun stop. The museum is the home where Fred Harman lived and is now occupied by his son.

Fascinating look at the man behind the comic strips. Beautiful paintings. Takes me back to my childhood with my bb gun.

This is a fun stop where you will learn about Fred Harman the cartoonist who created the Red Rider comic strip. You'll visit his home and studio, view some of his original art and a collection of comic strips. A nice stop for the family.

This museum is part of American history. It's worth a pull of Highway 160 at Piedra Road to see the amazing art and artifacts of Red Ryder.
