We were here with 2 kids so we could not really take our time appreciating all of the art, but we probably were able to spend a lot more time than we would have been able to due to the scavenger hunt they offered for the kids. My husband and I found that we got very involved in the hunt along with the kids and we found it enjoyable. Well worth the visit.
Also of note - you can take the free shuttle. It loops from the Welcome Center to the glass museum to the Rockwell museum and then to Market Street before going back to the welcome center.

This is a really interesting place! I enjoyed the artwork and photography displays. I got to participate in a guided tour. The leader was interesting and very knowledgeable.

I loved this museum, eclectic exhibits, shown in different colored rooms. The staff were interesting. There was a wide range of paintings, photographs and sculptures, all with a western theme. Besides Remington and Russell, there were photos from Amsel Adams and Curtis.

My twin boys and I visited this museum after purchasing a combination ticket with the Corning Museum of Glass. There is a convenient free shuttle between the museums. The museum is not too large and can be viewed in under an hour. The exhibits are beautifully displayed and the historic building that houses the collection is lovely.
