A nice display of outdoor sculptures and a great selection of excellent western art in the gallery. I was surprised by the number and quality of the pieces. There is also a nice selection of discount greeting cards for sale.

This is probably the finest western art collection outside of a public museum. Carefully collected over decades by one man, this beautiful work just makes you proud to be an American! Monumental sculptures and colorful canvases make this 350 piece collection a must-see if you are in the Boulder area. You can also take an interesting factory tour of the... More

This is a beautiful museum and sculpture garden. There is also a free tour, which we did not take. The artwork is bountiful, and although there is so much that it is hard to see it all, we enjoyed the wide variety of styles.

We discovered this collection of beautiful artwork while touring Boulder with family visiting from Utah and Korea. Looking for activities we could enjoy out of the 90 degree heat with a 9 month old infant. The museum fit the bill and entertained all of us at the same time. A truly memorable day!

The art here is so magnificent! It is free to enter but they do accept donations. There is a sculpture garden outside & paintings on the inside. They allow photos with no flash. There is a gift shop area as well. So many of the pieces were breath taking I attached my favorites.

We decided to stop on a whim. The outdoor garden of sculptures is just amazing. There are bronze statues of wildlife and western art. My favorite were the 3 wolfs! Inside is a beautiful private collection of paintings and sculptures along with plenty of unique items for purchase. We did not have time to take the tour, so we will... More

The museum was near our hotel in North Boulder, so we decided to go see it. And we were glad we did! The outdoor sculpture garden is filled with large bronze sculptures of animals and western themes. The beauty continues on the inside. The museum is actually the private collection of the Leanin' Tree greeting card factory owner. There are... More
