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 has a wonderful display of Native American Artifacts. Forrest Mars contributed to the new facility. It is handicap accessible. Well worth a trip into the country to experience this ...  more »
  • What a hidden delight. The art collection was diverse and well curated, especially the First Nations section. I particularly loved the rammed earth building walls and the texture it added to the space...  more »
  • A modern building, tucked in the side of a foothill with the mountains towering behind it . . . The Brinton Museum's architecture is just as artistically mesmerizing as the contents inside. That's eno...  more »

  • Words cannot describe how beautiful this venue is. The views are breathtaking. The tent area is fully paved with concrete and properly maintained to look nice and function well. But none of that matters if it's not a good experience. The staff at Brinton Museum understands this, and works diligently behind the scenes to make sure it all comes together perfectly. When I arrived at 2:30 in the afternoon Andrew had already been hard at work for a while. When I encounter a problem with the power, he got a distribution block ready for me and gave me my own circuit to run off of. No complaints, just swift action in a timely manner in order to keep things running smoothly. When I was done packing up at 1am and driving away Andrew was still hard at work cleaning up and re-setting the venue. 5 stars for the view, 5 stars for the staff, and 5 stars for the overall experience. Thanks guys, I can't wait to work here again!
  • Beautiful beautiful museum. They get shows from the best artists worldwide. Don't miss the views from the bistro.
  • The Brinton Museum offers a panoply of natural observations, and cultural artifacts, in a very special setting. Presenting a “big city museum” experience, without the distractions. The ranch at the base of the Bighorns, offers a glimpse into the gentrified world of remittance life, in the early settlement era. Period art collections are displayed in the preserved living quarters, and in rotating exhibits at the museum.
  • Great museum with a small but very interesting collection
  • Breathtaking view of the Bighorn Mts. This family(Brinton)really lived here. The staff is very knowledgeable of the history of the grounds, artwork and lives of the family.
