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

The art in this museum is really world class - you will appreciate it even if you don't generally go for western art. The booklet with the description of the paintings is excellent.

This is a small, free museum with wonderful examples of work by Charles Russell, Remington and a select few others. We learned much, thanks to the nice pamphlet with notes about the pieces we saw. The gift shop is full of wonders with a knowledgable staff, eager to share about Ft. Worth, Sid Richardson and art in general. Great visit,... More

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
