We went in looking for Xmas ornaments but got talked into walking through the gallery and am very glad we did. Wonderful western artwork. People are not very friendly that work there surprisingly.

This is my kind of art - all western. The gift shop had some nice western gifts, too. It is a short stop on your way around Sundance Square - just an hour, maybe a couple hours. Loved it.

Did the Old West really look like Remington and Russell depict it? Wrong question, just as “did Gertrude Stein really look like Picasso painted her?” is the wrong question. We are not talking about representational reality here, but about art that resonates with its audience. The better the artist, the stronger the resonance (and Remington and Russell are very, very...

One of Ft. Worth's gems! Art work was most enjoyable and guidebook was the best we've ever seen detailing each work on display. Great gift shop and location - lots of fun to be had in Sundance Square. Staff was very welcoming. Hard to believe it was free! Can't wait to visit upcoming exhibits!

Fort Worth should be proud to have a great collection of WesternHeritage art at its door steps. Staff is very knowledgable and very pleasant.

Wonderful paintings about the American West near the turn of the 1900s, and very useful printed guide to tell more about each exhibit. Very friendly staff. A nice place for a short stop-off; you could take as little as 15 minutes or as much as two hours, and admission is free!

We popped into this museum with our 2 grandkids while visiting old town, downtown Fort Worth. I have to admit we are by no means art connoisseurs, and felt a tad bit uncomfortable in the small, quiet, well-guarded art gallery. Most of the paintings and bronzes are by Remington and Russell depicting old west and native American scenes. Grandpa and... More

Call me a heathen but we were in and out in a few minutes, the paintings are interesting but there are not many and with children you can't linger in an art gallery for too long.

A very interesting display of the old west and native americans . Priceless paintings worth a look.A very pleasant way to pass an hour or so.
