We enjoy art museums wherever we travel. There wasn’t an entrance fee so we went in for free. We were a bit puzzled as to why this is called an art museum because all the art had a sale price. Art for sale usually means...More

Impressive museum for such a small town, located in a freshly restored historic building on the main drag. The exhibit when I visited was paintings and a few sculptures by (mostly) Colorado artists on a Western theme. Landscapes, wildlife portraits, cowoys etc. Check the website...More

Museum is housed in a beautiful old building. We saw the plein air artists, capturing the various national parks. Free admission, with donation jar option. Gift shop next door has some fabulous items.
