We have been to the Booth many times and are always excited to go! Such a magnificent selection of art, the youngest of kids will enjoy! Go during their western days party! Very entertaining and educational!

Fabulous collection of Western Art plus bonus room of collection of Presidents' letters. And Tellus, another stunner of a science museum is minutes away. Don't let Cartersville location fool you into thinking this is too far away. It is well worth it, and closer than many OTP neighborhoods bc it is a straight shot up I-75. Great variety of Western art and only genuine collection in the Southeast. Everyone is bound to find a favorite. Make sure to give yourself enough time to take it all in. It is a gem in the rough.

I was very pleasantly surprised at the extensive collection of traditional and contemporary western art. It has something for anyone interested in art. Worth the stop if you are in the area.

I was impressed by the range of art here. There were sculptures of all sizes, incredibly realistic paintings, some more modern works, native artifacts, movie artwork, and the most interesting to me were the paintings placed next to the book covers they later became, and one painting placed next to a few of its studies. There is also an exhibit with letters from each president: some related to the museum itself, but many with other random topics. That said, I think everyone should be able to find something of interest here.
By chance, my friend and I stopped by the museum during the Southeastern Cowboy Conference, so we got the added bonus of some live music inside. The native music was especially beautiful.
