I was a little diasappointed with this museum, although I must admit it was my fault. I thought this was museum had Norman Rockwell's art and when I realized it wasn't I was disappointed. The exhibits they had were interesting - Emphasis on the Old West.

The second part of the ticket bought for entrance to the Corning Museum, a shuttle bus takes you to the Gaffer District to the front door of this museum. Starting on the third floor, the visitor gets up close to Frederick Remington, Charles Russell and other western artists with beautiful sculptures and framed art. Part of the exhibition is from...

A small museum with an impressive collection of American Western art. Several works by Remington and Russell, as well as a number of paintings by members of the Taos Society of Artists. Definitely worth an afternoon if you enjoy American Western art.

This is a very good museum featuring American Indian Art and other interesting exhibits. In the middle of downtown with parking in back. We enjoyed going there.

First time here. Got the combo ticket when we went to the Corning Museum. Small but worth the visit. They have numerous Remington's here and also had works by Howard Terpning... Amazing artist, it feels as though you can reach out and physically touch what he painted as if it were in the room with you.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this collection. The museum is comfortable and we were unhurried. There is a lot of varied styles and media from sculpture to paintings, to guns; and from artists from the old west to Andy Warhol. You don't need a lot of time but we really enjoyed it. Even though we are not particular fans... More

The museum is just the right size, the paintings on display are well lit and there are many sitting areas at a proper distance to admire the light and depth of each piece. They also offer an interactive book of I Spy to look deeper into selected pictures.

Beautiful paintings and sculptures depicting the American western frontier (think cowboy era). Many of the paintings are not from that era but are recent creations. All are amazing. Museum is relatively small so you can see it all without taking all day. You can get tickets with a combo pass to the Corning Glass Museum. They have a free shuttle... More
