small but memorable. Richardson was a very successful oilman who collected Russell, Remington & Catlin then left it to the city. I appreciate the artistry but not the subject matter. just not my taste.

A very nice museum with a trip back into the history and time of the real West. The size of the museum is great - not too big - but big enough so you can have a wonderful overview of the works of Remington and Russell (and a couple of artists I didn't know).

This is a small Museum downtown with focus on history and with a gift shop. Small exhibits circle through this museum and it is interesting. I get it confused with Amon Carter Museum which also has western them exhibits but on a grander scale.

While strolling downtown Fort Worth I discovered this little gem of a museum. It is free and had original paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. The art used to belong to Texas oilman Sid Richardson. Well worth the time. If you park in one of the Sundance Square garages and bring your parking ticket to the museum they will... More

This western art museum in downtown Ft Worth, Texas, is a real treat for both adults and young people. The main interests are the works of Russel and Remington. Other western artists and sculptors add greatly to the show. Admission is free, and free is a very good price; especially for the Sid Richardson Museum. The display of western art... More
