We have never visited the Booth Museum. It is very large. The permanent collection covers all kinds of western and Civil War art. I recommend the museum highlights tour offered at 1:30. Docent Beth was great! For almost two hours she showed us the museum along with relating a lot of US history portrayed in the art. The museum also has wonderful temporary exhibits. A lot to see in one visit. We will be back! Thanks Beth for a great introduction.

Remarkable museum of American western art, particularly paintings and sculptures. If you can't afford the $13 admission, at least stop and walk through the outdoor sculpture garden, that alone is worth the stop. Established by a wealth individual wanting to leave a place for the public to see his extensive western art collection, the museum exhibits an extensive collection of works from the 1800s through current times .Docent tour at 1:30 and the one we experienced was excellent. We stopped after 3 hours only because our brains were overloaded with information.

This was the main reason that I visited area and was not disappointed. This is a great museum for western art and is set up in several sections. It is self guided and has elevators if needed instead of stairs. I will probably re-visit again in the future. I would recommend to anyone to has interest in western art or just wanting to learn some history. Staff is very friendly and has guides on floors if you have questions, very enjoyable

Friends told me for years that I needed to go to the Booth (I live in Atlanta, 45 minutes away), that it was really outstanding, and that I would thoroughly enjoy the experience even though I wasn’t an art aficionado by any stretch of the imagination. Turns out, they were understating how great it was. The building itself is extraordinary, and the outdoor sculpture alone is worth the trip. The tour guide was excellent, and I found it a wonderful experience overall. I can see why the Booth is generally rated so high among all museums in the US. I plan to go back from time to time, not just to see temporary exhibitions, but to enjoy the permanent collection as well.

If I could change anything, I would like to see more art concentrating on the animals of the West.

This is a fantastic Western Art Museum. Anyone driving on I-75 between Atlanta and Chattanooga should take the time to go see this museum!

The art here is high quality, realist art, mostly done by living artists. Some of the paintings are worth over $1,000,000 and are by the top names in Western Art. The art here rivals anything at the museums and galleries in Cody, or Jackson, or Santa Fe. There's no need to go out west to find outstanding Western Art!

This is my favorite art museum, and I've been to most of the top museums in the USA and Europe.

We made a special trip to see this museum. We spent 4 hours today and it was fabulous. The special exhibit of Cathy A. Smith, she is a costume designer who's work was seen in Dancing with Wolves, etc. We enjoyed lunch at the cafe, relaxed a little and toured outside sculptures.

My mother took me to the Booth my first and only time about a year ago. The paintings, sculpture, and museum object including stagecoaches and ephemera comprise multiple floors. I'd recommend dedicating the better part of a day to take in this serious collection. If you are an art or history lover, it will easily take 4-5 hours to appreciate it all. I'm looking forward to returning soon.

A really great experience. My wife and I are Sustainers in the Georgia O'Keeffe museum in Santa Fe. This is one of the best displays of western art that we have seen. It has many large bronzes that are breath taking. A lot of times I do a man-look and ignore things that I don't care for, but we spent over 3 hours going through over 120,000 sq ft of museum.

I have seen a lot of Western art and went with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of the art - painting and sculpture. Sorry the tour didn't fit into our schedule. Parking easy.

This is a top notch art museum that should be on every art lover's list as they travel in the Southeast. The building itself is wonderful modern one with lots of glass and light. Located next to the small historic main street with shops and eateries still open for business. The artists represented in the collection range from all historical Western artists like Remington, Russell, Couse to the Taos artists to modern Santa Fe greats.
The pleasant cafe is open during the week.
