Great collection, Reasonably priced art

We walked the small museum, which is free, and the paintings are just stunning. A few are truly great. Reproductions are sold at very reasonable prices for framed art.

Went in my chance and was happily surprised. Nice small gallery with interesting painting of the west. Free admission with a guide that tells you what every painting is about. It also has a nice collection of Fort Worth and Texas gifts that are not too expensive.

This was our third trip to Sid Richardson's fine museum of Russell and Remington (and a few other artists). The second time we went we did not get there because of so much downtown construction which seems to be finished. The museum opens at 9a. We arrived just a few minutes after and actually found a place to park on... More

The Sid Richardson Museum is not a huge place......easy to walk through........and full of great works of art. We thoroughly enjoyed our viewing of Remmingtons and other Western Art artists. Definitely a great place to visit........and a cute gift shop, too!

Priceless works of art merely feet away from the sidewalk. Knowledgeable docents and terrific guide book describe one of the finest collections of Western art by Remington and Russell

Great place to view western art that is in the Sundance Square area of downtown Fort Worth. Staff is very helpful and informative and if you like western art, this is a great place. Not as well known as some of the other museums, but well worth the trip especially if you are downtown are visiting Sundance Square.

Sid Richardson left an impact and in this museum you'll have an opportunity to visit a beautiful collection of american western art. From legendary paintings and storyboards from Lonesome Dove you'll find it here
