If you love Remington, this is the place for you. Many bronzes, and some insights into his life

Museum is situated in the center of Ogdensburg, NY in the 2-century old house. Perfect collection of Frederic Remington's oil painting and bronze. Gives you a picture of a certain period of American history, native people culture and habits. Lots of horses in bronze and paintings, beautiful pictures of American and Canadian nature. The artist visited Canada, the Pontiac valley, in the last year of his life. For sure, "he will endure in bronze - it never rusts". Also the house itself deserves attention - furniture, books, collections of cutlery, glass and dinner ware, porcelain, books, staircase. Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff, good souvenir shop. You can see St. Laurent river from the window of the 2nd floor, and Canadian town of Prescott on the other bank. We enjoyed the visit very much.

This small museum is all about Frederic Remington and his work.
Museum was a pleasant surprise for the size and depth of the collection, the excellent display settings with really good information about each piece and the friendlines of the staff. We learned a lot.
Well worth a short 1-2 hour stop if you have any interest in Remington and his art.

The museum is essentially an art gallery with the story and many works of Frederic Remington on the main floor, and the family's own art collection, some secondary collections and a history of the building itself on the upper floor. The works on display offer a very good selection in terms of understanding Remington's sculptures and paintings. There are ample printed guides, an audio tour, and helpful staff who seem are genuinely enthusiastic about the subject at hand. There is a gift shop with some very high quality reproductions as well. The house itself has an interesting history, and the location near the river makes for a very pleasant setting. Worth a detour to see.
