We thoroughly enjoyed the museum and paintings. This stop was recommended by two Texas tourist information centers. This was well worth the walk. The paintings are well displayed and there are information booklets available at the desk.

Love immersing myself in the history of Texas now that I live here - great place to start! Have a friend with a Remington and they showcase his work here

It doesn't take long to wander through this little gallery, but you must leave backpacks and water bottles with security. The Remingtons are a standout.

This is a small museum located in a retail/restaurant area of downtown Fort Worth. It is bigger than it looks from the outside and the quality and the amount of art will surprise you. It is mostly western art with pieces by Charles Russell, Frederic Remington and other famous western artists. It made for a nice cool respite on a... More

Up close and personal with Remington and other western artists from the late 1800's. Easy to miss if your not looking for it.

Walked by and popped in to see what the place was about. I have always loved Frederic Remington's sculptures and the collection was mostly oils of the west by him and a few others. Fantastic, beautifully displayed and a quick and enjoyable walk. Free to all and a wonderful find. Lovely staff as well. Get yourself some culture in Fort... More

One of the 2 rooms of this small museum was under renovation when we visited, so we got to see only a portion of the collection, which includes many of the signature works of both Remington and Russell. This provides a good introduction to the body of work of each of these 2 western "masters." Given its location only steps... More

Having just a limited time in Fort Worth we opted to forgo the Kimbell and Amon Carter for this smaller sampling of beautiful art. With just two display galleries you can get a wonderful example of two of the great American artists in a short time. Our visit made me curious to learn more about Sid Richardson and his life....
