Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have wanted to visit this museum since one of the museum's experts on the West presented a program at our library. I was amazed to learn that a Western art museum was located in this Georgia city. When we visited we not only enjoyed the amazing Western art collection and Presidential exhibit, but also the special Saturday Evening Post cover art exhibit.

“Impressive permanent collection - worth the trip”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

An impressive collection of art from the American West and US Presidential historical / autographed items. Sculpture, bronzes, traditional western themes, contemporary western artists, Indian art as well as modern western art. Sleek glass and concrete museum with 3 floors of varied galleries and exhibit space. Although I have been twice, I have never seen the entire collection on all 3 floors. Plan to spend at least 1 1/2 hours but could easily spend 3-4 hours. Located in the heart of old downtown Cartersville, GA which is about 45 minutes north of Atlanta on I-75. Vintage downtown area with nicely done restaurants and shops in historic brick buildings.

“As in 'Out West' USA”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

At first I didn't know if this would be art from the western hemisphere or from the "American West." It is the latter and the exhibits are superb. Second biggest art museum in Georgia!

“Booth Western Art Museum”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Wonderful museum. Art works are amazing. Collection of western realia is worth the trip. The President room is a must see. Includes an interactive area for children. Don't let the "western art" in the name fool you, this is a great family experience and individuals will enjoy it also.

Enjoyed the museum. We visit several times a year. Current exhibit features Norman Rockwell magazine art. They also have a room dedicated to our presidents with letters written from and to them dating back to Washington.
