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

  • Wonderful little piece of history! Amazing art and super knowledgeable staff! Fun place for the whole family, especially art lovers!
  • We visited your outstanding museum yesterday for the first time. Every single gallery was marvelous! The building it's self is a work of art. We live close by in Story, WY. and were frequent visitors to the original gallery and ranch house, taking many house guests there when they stayed with us. My husband and I have now become members as we know we will be making frequent trips to this magnificent museum. We had lunch in your Bistro which was delightful, even though smoke from wildfires (outside of our state) somewhat obscured the panoramic views of the Big Horns. Our kudos, for a job well done! One small suggestion I might make is concerning the information signage in the Native American Artifacts gallery. As we and our guests are all in our mid 60's to 70's, we had problems reading the signage when it was placed at the bottom of the display cases near the ground. Many "Senior Citizens" have bi- or tri-focal lenses that makes it difficult to read far away print, and for many of us, kneeling down to be able to read is not an option. Just thought I'd mention it! Again, thank you for this amazing museum!
