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.

“Cowboy's and Indian's Galore”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Liked It, very reasonable $3 buck admission. Spent a couple of hours looking at everything and watching some kind of reenactment of old western life.

“Loved the locale...”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

if you could see through the museum artifacts and see the old department store, it was a great architectual history lesson. I found it fun to try to envison the department store in its day.The artifacts on display were nicely presented and perserved. Check out the photograph display in the lower level and the gift shop as well.

“quaint but fun”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The art is fun. But I especially like the photo exhibit in the basement and the vintage western stuff like saddles, guns and kinves. It won't fill an afternoon but worth the stop if you have an hour or so to kill.

“Best thing to see in Trinidad”
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.
