I used to live in DFW and had brought students here years ago. They have redone the space and it looks twice as big! Instead of the narrated guide you might get at a bigger museum you get a booklet with a paragraph about each painting. This is a small but magnificent gem just off Sundance Square and it is... More

We wandered into this museum while exploring Sundance Square before going to dinner. We plan to come back when we have more time. I appreciate many forms of art and Ft. Worth is blessed with many wonderful art museums and exhibits. The Sid Richardson museum is a treasure, and those who enjoy Native American and Western art are in for... More

This is such a great place! Located right in the middle of everything in Sundance Square (where parking is free after 6 and all weekend), no admission either. What you get for your short walk: two big rooms full of Western art by the masters of the genre: Remington and Russel (and a few by others). I have stopped in... More

Thank you Mr. Sid! Sid Richardson was the largest private collector of Remington and Russell works of art. Here you will find his collection. In a city that is known for some of the greatest art museums in the world, The Sid Richardson can hold its own against the others. Take your time going through this gem, the docents are... More

I might be bias because I am a big fan of Native American art and culture. Some of the paintings in there are so gorgeous. You can even purchase reproductions of them in the gift shop. I just wish there was more art in the actual museum and more exhibits. It's right in the middle of Sundance Square so you... More

This grand gallery hold quite a collection of western art. Pictures are not allowed (which is normal in any gallery) The gallery has a little store which sells plenty of western paraphernalia for you to purchase... quite a great place to visit when in Fort Worth.

This is like a large shop and features the paintings of 2 artists who specialised in painting scenes from the old West, mainly Native Americans/1st Nation. The 2 artists are Remington and Russell and there are some really beautiful paintings with some iconic subjects. You can be in and in 30 minutes and it's free. They even give you a... More

Small, practically private, wonderful examples of Remington and Russell artwork which I love. Doesn't take long to see everything, but it is impressive if you care for American western art.

This is a great museum at the right price - free! It is Texas oilman - Sid Richardson's personal collection of old west art - mostly by Charles Russell and Frederick Remington - informative historian and a beautiful gift store. Don't miss it when near downtown Fort Worth.

The Sid Richardson museum is a wonderful place to visit art of the past. They have traveling exhibits from past artist, many from the Old West era. The museum is well lit and the staff is excellent in their knowledge of the pieces at the museum, the artist and the area or subject of the piece..
