One of Ft. Worth's gems! Art work was most enjoyable and guidebook was the best we've ever seen detailing each work on display. Great gift shop and location - lots of fun to be had in Sundance Square. Staff was very welcoming. Hard to believe it was free! Can't wait to visit upcoming exhibits!

Fort Worth should be proud to have a great collection of WesternHeritage art at its door steps. Staff is very knowledgable and very pleasant.

Wonderful paintings about the American West near the turn of the 1900s, and very useful printed guide to tell more about each exhibit. Very friendly staff. A nice place for a short stop-off; you could take as little as 15 minutes or as much as two hours, and admission is free!

We popped into this museum with our 2 grandkids while visiting old town, downtown Fort Worth. I have to admit we are by no means art connoisseurs, and felt a tad bit uncomfortable in the small, quiet, well-guarded art gallery. Most of the paintings and bronzes are by Remington and Russell depicting old west and native American scenes. Grandpa and... More

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
