I was so surprised by the incredible quality of this museum. The collection of western art was fabulous. They also have great history and culture exhibits. The exhibits about rodeos and western movies were fun, and the replica western town was impressive. There is something to appeal to people of all ages. We spent 3 hours there, and we probably...

If you think you know a lot about Cowboys, guess again. Very thorough history of the old west and those that helped frame and build this country. So glad we were able to see this.

The content is beautiful. Too many of the displays are dark and the explanatory information is hard to read unless you are 3 feet tall. Most visitors are older people that cannot bend down over and over to read each display item. Some displays were dark due to needing repair of the lighting for the displays. The museum workers did...

Personally welcomed on arrival with the layout explained to us. The statue of the native american's last trail was moving. Enjoyed the displays and was a really enjoyable couple of hours.

I was very surprised by the size and quality of this museum. Their collection is amazing, even our 14 year old son enjoyed it. Give yourself at least a couple hours to see everything they have to offer.

The museum staff and volunteers are friendly and welcoming and do a great job expanding your knowledge of this unique heritage. This is a place for old and young and everyone can find something that is intriguing. Allow several... More

If you are into western art and culture, then this is probably the best place that you can visit in the country. They have western art on display by not only current but past great western artists. It is easy to access from the freeway.

Every year, my job hosts a dinner banquet here...it's so large and open and beautiful. Going through the museum exhibits and displays is also fascinating. It shows a history that has been romanticized in movies and paintings. It's a beautiful place to visit whether for business or pleasure.

This was one of the most beautiful and professional museums I have been to - and that is saying a bit since I live in Chicago. Very clean. Very thorough. Has many paintings and sculptures along with section for movie/TV cowboys, a small replica of a town and many other interesting side exhibits focusing on the Calvary, Indian rugs, etc.... More
