If you ever thought cowboy stuff was boring then think again. This place is stupendous. One of the most eloquent museums I have ever visited. It goes on and on with one brilliant horse and rider exhibit after another. Worth every penny of the admission price and much more. I would not trade in this wonderful experience for anything.

Go there purposefully as an all day trip also visiting the Tellus Museum further up I-75. This will be one day you and your family will never forget.

No matter which of your childhood cowboy heroes has faded in your memory they will be brought to life again during your visit.

Fantastic works of art and many floors to explore. Make sure you visit the President's Hall where you'll get a great history lesson on present and past on each one.

It's a western museum and yes there's a lot of western art - cowboys, settlers, Native Americans, and civil war. There's also so much more. There's a presidential room and modern art room. the modern art is once again western but full of fun surprises. The cost is pretty low and well worth the visit. I've gone twice both during special exhibits. The last time was for the Saturday Evening post and previous for the Ansel Adams exhibit. Both were wonderful. Everything is well maintained.

We LOVED this museum - it has wonderful paintings, a very creative child's area, Western history and facts, lots of folklore, hands-on activites, and a hall of US Presidents.

There are annual and seasonal events at this museum - rodeo type things, and lots of family-oriented things. Kids loved it. Adults loved it. Please try to go - it is a lot of fun.

We visited the Booth on a weekday with another couple and found the displays very enjoyable. Not sure how kids would react, but there are some interesting displays, like an old western stagecoach and some kid-friendly activities offered. The sculptures and paintings were top notch, with lots of interesting details to observe and discuss. We combined our trip there with a chance to take our friends to eat lunch at the Appalachian Grill, just a block away. It was a very enjoyable day. Cartersville still retains a lot of it's small downtown charm, despite all the growth around it.
