We visited this wonderful museum while on a trip from Montreal to New York City. I have been an admirer of Remington's sculpture for much of my life and it was a treat to see so much of his work -- including paintings -- in one place. The collection is housed in a beautiful 1890s house, the Parish Mansion, where... More

A friend and I were road tripping around New York state and decided to drive through Ogdensburg. We were just exploring the town and drove down the street that the museum was on. What a treat! The museum has a great collection of Remington's paintings and bronze sculptures. Just the type of stimulating experiences a road trip should be about.

Our summer place isn't far so we went on a Tuesday afternoon. We were one of three people in the museum so we had plenty of time and space. Pros: The collection of original Remington paintings, watercolors and sculptures is very good. One can see Remington's progression from the 1880's to the early 1900's and his increasing artistry, which is... More

Frederic Remington is a renowned artist that was from the Ogdensburg area. It's a rare thrill to see some of his great work in such a small and compact space. The museum is a great place to spend a few hours on an afternoon.

This was a fantastic museum, with an amazing number of Frederick Remington bronzes and drawings from his earlier years. I was totally surprised that there is such a great museum in this area of rural northern New York.

My college roommates and I visited the museum which I had read was a top-notch small museum. Those reviews were spot on! We wanted to have lunch first and the kind woman manning the desk gave us directions using a map available in the museum. She told us that they have a majority of his bronze casts on display, paintings... More

How wonderful to see so many of Remington's works in one museum. And to see so many artifacts of his career and life. Well worth the time to seek out this museum. Definitely big town quality in a small town setting.

This museum is well organized and very informative, with cards telling about most of the artwork. There are drawings and paintings as well as bronzes. The exhibits have been arranged with care, and it was evident that everyone working there had a sense of pride in the museum. Even if you know very little about Frederic Remington, this museum is...
