Art Museum Museum
The Brinton Museum reopens for the season on March 15, 2016.

Wyoming’s rolling Bighorn Mountains envelop The Brinton Museum on the 620-acre Quarter Circle A Ranch. Its sweeping landscape and surrounding mountain range have long been the muse of treasured American artists and the setting for rich cultural traditions integral to the American Indian tribes inhabiting this region.

The Brinton’s new 24,000-square-foot Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Building houses one of the most significant and extensive 19th, 20th and 21st century Western and American Indian Art collections in the U.S. featuring Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, Thomas Moran, Edward Borein, Winold Reiss, and the largest Hans Kleiber collection in the world.

The Brinton Museum is located just 10 minutes from downtown Sheridan, Wyoming at 239 Brinton Road, Big Horn, Wyoming. To learn more visit thebrintonmuseum.org.

  • Seriously, what a gem. If you are in the area check it out. I lived here for almost 4 years and never did. The view is stunning, the museum is amazing, and the art is one of a kind. Don't leave without touring the house and checking out the outbuildings. It was one of my favorite things I did yesterday for sure.
