“Great Place for Out of Town Guests”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The museum is unique with several large bronze sculptures outside, easily viewed off of a circular path. The interior of the museum has every media and style imaginable of all Western-themed art. Many many cowboys, western wildlife and Native Americans. The different art styles and media made it work, so was not monotonous. Went twice in one week to take different groups of guests, and enjoyed it both times. Parking is very easy, free and right in front of museum.

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

There are some absolutely gorgeous paintings of the western landscape: mountains, rivers, sunsets! The sculpture garden is also really neat and features a couple sculptures that you can actually climb on!

“Excellent sculptures in the garden area,”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The museum was nice and you can go though it in about 20 minutes. The staff is pleasant and there is a gift shop. The art is not of the genre that I care for but there were three paintings in particular that absolutely took my breath away. If you have extra time it is worth it, if you are short on time I would skip it.

Although the art work is more old west which is not my cup of tea, it is extraordinarily beautiful! They also make greeting unique greeting cards which are available for purchase.
