If you like paintings and bronzes that are not impressionist, cubist or descended from the many modern schools--that is trees look like trees, streams look like water, et al--then the art work in this place will be of interest to you. Many of the fine paintings recalled the Dutch masters who could paint an image that looked like a photograph. The antiquities, bead work and carvings were something only an aficionado could appreciate. And there was just a Huge collection of old saddles, clothing and six-gun outfits from the most famous and recent movie cowboys to silver screen actors from the '20s that were totally unknown to us. There was a large collection of Colt pistols, mostly presentation models, but sadly the museum staff did not feel it necessary to list the caliber of most of the handguns. As a consequence if you are familiar with firearms you'll get a model number, serial number and other numbers, but no cartridge information. There are also large sets for 'saloons', wagon trains and so forth that give a visitor a sense of that place in that era. The entry fee was fair for the quality and quantity of the materials presented.
