Great collection of Western paintings. Great collection for its size. just off Sundance Square. Free admission. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

I work in Sundance Square, downtown Fort Worth and stop by this little Museum at lunch sometimes. The exhibits change a few times a year and there is no admission fee so I can wander around with no pressure when I have a little time to spare. I always see something interesting and it is always worth while.

this small museum is a result of mr. richardson sharing his private collection of remington and russell western art with us all. there is no fee. all of the paintings are by the above two artists famous for that genre. pop in for even just 15 minutes.

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.
