Nice Collection of Western Art

Fine displays of art , great to read the history behind the pieces. Also a shop which is well worth a visit as you can buy art copies - I managed to get them back to the U.K. intact. Very welcoming staff , very enjoyable experience.

My (then 10 year old) son loves horses so when we went to Fort Worth at the end of last year we decided to visit the Sid Richardson Museum. We went on a Saturday just before 2pm to get the free tour. The guide was great, she was very knowledgeable and engaged the group with questions. She really added to... More

This is THE place to find that special piece of art which encapsulates all things 'Western' and 'Cowboy' in particular. Even the postcards of wild west scenes are fantastic and greatvalue even if you don't want to buy one of the originals!

It's right downtown in the Sundance area and easy to find--the Museum is located across the street and a half block south from the Worthington Hotel. The Sid Richardson Museum is a relatively small Museum that houses western art and features Russell and Remington. There are probably another 6-8 featured artists... More

The most spectacular collection of Remingtons and Russells that you will ever see. The museum is tiny but well worth the search to find it. God, it must be nice to have the kind of money that would enable one to collect pieces like on display in this museum!

We were staying nearby and wondered in. It was a fantastic stop. We really enjoyed the collections and the writeups on each painting.
