The museum is located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth and is free. It includes the private collection of Sid Richardson's Frederic Remington's, Charles Russell and the works of other Western Art artists as well as some works by other private collectors.

took the kids here it shows a lot of Texas based art, its a small museum but is pretty interesting, they have some historical items there as well and the staff is great! Plus they can validate your parking! so check out Sundance Square while your there.

We came in because it was hot outside, but the cool was not the best part. Really enjoyed seeing all the historic paintings. Full of western art and paintings. The saddle was beautiful.

Not only is this one of the finest Western Art museums, it's free to the public! Located within a block of Sundance Square, the quaint Sid Richardson Museum opens its doors to anyone who appreciates masters like Remington and Russell. Their gift shop offers quite a collection of novelties that represent the Old West and museum. Don't pass this one... More

The Sid Richardson Museum is truly a hidden Fort Worth treasure! Its located on Main Street in the Sundance Square neighborhood and virtually indistinguishable among the restaurants, galleries and shops in this 'happening' area. Outstanding Remington collection presented in a comfortable format and, curiously, no entry fee!! You get a feel for the West which clearly was a major interest... More

This was my second visit to the Sid Richardson museum. I was last here about 6 years ago when we first moved to Texas. This past weekend, we stopped in to show it off to some family visiting from out of town. It was just as I remembered - small, quiet, and full of breathtaking pieces. The Lonesome Dove exhibition...
