Definitely worth the short trip north of Boulder. One of the best free art museums you'll encounter. Outstanding and diverse collection of western art assembled by one man/family. Outdoor sculpture is just terrific. And the story of Leanin' Tree cards is pretty cool, too. Kudos to Leanin' Tree for making this great collection available to the public -- and for... More

Really nice free first class paintings, mostly western and excellent. The bronze statues in the yard outside are stunning. The oiutside garden area is a nice place to hang out.

With time to spare on a Boulder visit and having read about Leanin' Tree in a local guide, I decided to go off the beaten path and check out the Museum, and I'm so glad I did!. The western art is breathtaking, and there's so much more than I expected in this small venue. The card & gift shops have... More

This small museum has an extraordinary collection of Western art that stands heads above the collections in most larger museums. And admission is free! There is serious art and humorous art, paintings and sculpture. It is a real treat to see that much fine art without having to walk miles.

This museum is a very nice way to spend part of an afternoon in Boulder! The sculpture garden is full of interesting and beautiful Western-inspired pieces. I visited in the winter so I don't know about the landscape but I imagine it's lovely! The art inside is amazing and takes about an hour or so to get through. They have... More

A nice place to see quite a collection of western art and then seeing how greeting cards are produced. A good way to spend a hour or so.

I love strolling through this museum looking at the western art. My favorite is Bill Hughes, but they are all good. Great gift shop too with a HUGE card selection. The tour was fun and informative, and we got to see them making cards.

The Leanin' Tree Museum of Western Art is definitely off the beaten path on a back street in the Gunbarrel area of northwest Boulder. But it is definitely worth a trip, and especially so if entertaining out-of-town guests who enjoy Western Art. It has a great collection of western US -themed paintings and statues. And - it is all free... More
