Well lit and bright. Loved the statues/ bronzes, and the paintings of Western scenes. Impressive place. Don't miss the gallery of cowboy film and TV stars.

Visited here with my family on a trip from Ireland. It was amazing. Spent hours there. Look forward to returning some day soon.

I had know idea the museum would be so extensive! We really could have stayed several hours more! I especially loved the pioneer town and the rodeo exhibit. My husband and I plan on going back to take our girls and my in-laws who would love it! They have a neat children's area, also, with hands-on activities. We didn't eat... More

This was a little pricey, but we had a coupon for $2 off. When we first started our tour of the museum and all we saw was art work (don't get me wrong - there's some awesome art work here!!), but we weren't thinking it would take us long to go through it, but then we got into the other... More

Overall we enjoyed our visit. There was quite a bit to see, but about half of it was boring for small children and they were getting antsy.

If you require a cane the museum is too long. Everything starts to look the same after a while. Several of the movie stars donated items from their movies which was Cool. But not really worth the $ 12 admission.

Holy Cow! This place is huge! Although I am somewhat of a city girl, I really did enjoy this museum. The rooms about western movies were especially fun. We also loved spending time in "Prosperity Junction" which is a depiction of what a western town would be like. Very recommended!

Plan to spend some time in this museum. (If so inclined, be sure to ask about the 2 day pass.) There's so much to see that you will find yourself spending several hours at a minimum to take it all in. Otherwise, expect to spend at least 3 hours for a quick run through. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable.... More

This is a great museum with many exhibits both from the actual cowboy days, to those that honored the cowboys in the entertainment industry. We loved it and spent several hours going through.
