If you don't like western art, stay away - it's all they have. The art on display was very impressive. In a very neat old building.

Lots of beautiful, familiar bronzes of the Old West, e.g., Remington Great large scale paintings of the West All of this and more are in the permanent collection. I was very surprised and even more pleased by this discovery.

Not cheap and not that much to see but just enough to keep a young child interested for an hour or so and the kids’ activity room is better than most. Some good art on display and some stunning western landscapes.

Worthwhile stop for an hour, or so. Interesting exhibits. Not a comprehensive history museum. Our visit coincided with two school groups, probably middle school. They were inappropriatley loud an many seemed completely disinterested.

Great small museum with interesting artwork, especially Norman Rockwell. Nota destination spot but if you're in area, worth the hour or two you will spend here. Nice restored building.
