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.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Amazing collection in a beautiful place. The view from the cafe on the third floor is worth the trip alone.
  • Cool Place to check out some nativeness.
  • A world-class quality museum newly built to showcase art from numerous cultures locally and around the world, and honoring the rich history of Native Americans
