I cringe a bit at the renderings of the Old West that depict the prevailing sterotypical native Americans of 100 years ago, and the good-guy cowboys. Remmington and Russell--as archaic depictors of the Old West--are not high on my list of beloved artists. But this little museum and gift shop tucked into Old Town in Fort Worth is welcoming and...

It's free and full of Remingtons and Russels, bronzes as well as paintings, and there is a fantastic gift shop to boot. The exhibit changes quarterly usually.

About twenty years ago we downsized! I was able to donate a set of Remington prints to this Museum - Last week I finally visited the gallery in downtown Fort Worth. We visited on a Sunday so traffic and parking were easy. Excellent directions for both are available on the website if you need them. Although the gallery is very... More

This is a must on your visit to Fort Worth. I visit this small museum every time that I visit here. I was never a fan of western art until I came here and saw it in person "WOW". Also the museum is free.

It was a free museum, full of old west art. The staff was very friendly and informative too. If you like art, it's worth a visit.

The Sid Richardson is probably the most valuable museum in the world per square foot. It takes only about an hour and a half to see all the paintings displayed. However; each is a masterpiece. There is not one typical painting there. The art is of the American West, Remington and Russel predominately.

We are not ones for galleries but we loved this one. Maybe because the paintings were all interesting. You get a brochure to walk around with which tells you about the history of each painting. There were some amazing paintings, all of the Wild West ,Indians, cowboys.great .
