We spent a couple hours here with a museum guide as part of a Road Scholar trip. Although this museum looks small and is set into a hill, don't be fooled by a drive by. This is a fantastic art museum with wonderful works and great guides, plus an excellent restaurant. We have visited many museums, but this place tops... More

I have been to the Museum twice in the past year. The last time was during an auction/award event in which we could select a single favorite to win "Best in Show". It was one of the harder decisions of my life. As I walked through the galleries, I honestly had to fight tears from the sheer beauty of every... More

We loved this museum! The art is exquisite- includes paintings (various mediums) and sculpture. The architecture and the way the art is displayed is beautiful. The outdoor sculpture trail is ...... amazing! Definitely worth seeing!

I attended a rehearsal dinner with all the out of town guests. The entire museum was ope to us, to view. The children's section was open to entertain the children and a bar and pasta stations set up in main room. It was great to walk around and view all the wonderful art and socialize with friends.

If you like western art, this is a must see! The building architecture is also very interesting. Great educational opportunity for visitors not familiar with wildlife. Worth the typical entry fee if $15.

Wonderful art museum with sculptures and paintings. Not to be bypassed. Across from Elk Refuge. Many paintings by Carl Rungius but also an Edward Hicks Peaceable Kingdom and a Charles Russell. Great gift shop.

We drove up to the museum and were in awe of the views. The outdoor sculptures are amazing as you walk into the museum. We did not know what to expect and were hesitant at the entry price for the unknown museum. We also had a short time period to view (1 hour) but decided to check it out... And... More

Don't miss. The museum is built into the mountain side and is a work of our itself. There is lot of art outside the museum as well as inside. We were there on a Sunday and the café was closed. Wheelchairs were available.
