Might have missed this little gem if we hadn't been told about it beforehand. Delightful works of art in there if you like paintings of the old west. Staff in the shop we're welcoming but not pushy (forcing sales!) loved the visit.

The Sid Richardson museum of western art is a small collection of impressive paintings located in the historic Sundance Square neighborhood of downtown Fort Worth. They have special exhibits in addition to their regular collection. There was a very well-behaved 3rd grade class participating in an educational field trip the day I visited. The docents are knowledgable and conduct scheduled... More

Even if you are not planning a long trip or vacation, you can easily enjoy the magnificent western scenery in paintings by two of the best artists ever to lift a brush. The Sid Richardson Museum, situated on Main Street in Sundance Square, is as far as you need to go. Located just steps north of the new Sundance Plaza,... More

This is a hidden gem of a museum right on downtown Fort Worth. A simply incredible display of classic American west art, that you will never see anywhere else. A well preserved and unique collection. And it's all free.

Frederic Remington and Charles Russell are among my favorite artists, and it was a thrill to see this collection for the first time. An added bonus is the selection of George Catlin paintings on loan from the National Gallery through May 2015. There is a nice explanatory catalog of the collection, including the Catlin works. I won't attempt to put... More

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.
