If a billionaire let you into his house for a tour of his private art collection, you would be foolish to say no. This collection tells the story of the American West and contains a wonderful collection of artists and works. The audio tour is excellent and included in the $5 price.

Luckily the museum was open and I was able to take a tour back in time to view an impressive collection of early western art. My favorite paintings depicted the artists positive observations of tribal ceremonies and... More

Very interesting to see art that was made in the 1800-1990's. The audio portion of the tour gives background to the artist's history and where the art was derived from.

Phenomenal collection of western art Tucked away on a side street about a block and a half east of the 16th street mall in an area otherwise full of offices and stores, is one of the most phenomenal little museums of Western American art in the country. Admittedly, visiting isn’t easy. The museum has limited opening hours and requires a... More
