This is a relatively small art museum, and I wouldn't expect to spend more than 1-2 hours. The biggest collection is Remington and Russell, but there is a healthy set of art styles. The painting collection isn't huge, but it has works from quite a...More

The museum always seems to have something new on display. Here they had a sculpture exhibit which exhibits many of the works of 3 sculptures of the 20’s which was well done and impressive. Stop by and enjoy a couple of hours.

The permanent collection covers all areas of American art, not just Western, although their collection of Russells, Remingtons, et al is amazing. Totally free with a free parking lot. Easy to spend most of a day here.
