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.

Unless you are interested in western art this is a very small museum consisting of 2 rooms of paintings.

Remington and Russell are the stars of this museum and you don't have to like Western art to appreciate their story-telling and use of color in their paintings. Every time I see the permanent collection, I find a nuance in a painting that I had not seen before.

If you have not been downtown to the Sid Richardson Museum you don't know what your missing. Roberta Atkins gives a grand performance telling the story of Charles Russell. She dresses and performs as Nancy Cooper Russell ( wife to Charles). You feel like your right there. Roberta performs on the second Saturday of every month. I still go just... More

Persuaded my daughter and her partner to visit this gallery with me . Even though they were only humoring me, we all adored it in here and even better it is FREE. The authentic western art collection is atmospheric and the staff are so informative and jolly.

Spend as much or as little time as you wish. The rooms of artwork...paintings and sculpture/castings...allow contemplation and savoring. All are originals, primarily Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. The free illustrated guide book is a valuable help, and the gift shop has prints of any artwork you wish to purchase. A great exposure to western art. I loved it!

Small but wonderful museum. Traditional art by 2 great American artists - Russel and Remington plus couple of others - depicting "Conquering the Wild West" era. Fabulous lighting and colors by those artists. Just 3 rooms/galleries plus a souvenir shop. The nice greeting ladies would show you around and tell about every possible detail on each picture that you pick... More

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.
