Owner description: A Hidden Gem of Cowboy Art! Arthur Roy Mitchell painted iconic western scenes featuring cowboys, horses, cattle and vast beautiful landscapes that captured the hearts and minds of pulp western readers from the 1930's to today. The largest collection of his work is proudly displayed at the A.R. Mitchell Museum of Western Art, in downtown Trinidad, Colorado. Plan a visit to view this beautiful collection and we hope you'll become a member and support our efforts to keep his art alive and on display for generations to come.

“Best thing to see in Trinidad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is a nice little gem. We stopped on an afternoon just looking for something to do while in town seeing family. It was free and a nice view back into the past of cowboy artwork.

“This museum should me on more maps. Ask for the director's tour we stumbled upon.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

I liked the directors tour. I learned much more than walking through the museum on my own.

“Don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2010

The Mitchell Museum is a facinating place to spend an afternoon. The art by A.R. Mitchell is fabulous and the accompaning works by local artist is terrific. The museum building is an old department store with this wonderful mezzinine in the shape of a horseshoe. A wonderful open space. The gift shop has all kinds of wonderful items and the display of old pawn Indian jewelry for sale is not to be missed.
