  • Up close and personal with Remington and other western artists from the late 1800's. Easy to miss if your not looking for it.  more »
  • Walked by and popped in to see what the place was about. I have always loved Frederic Remington's sculptures and the collection was mostly oils of the west by him and a few others. Fantastic, beautifu...  more »
  • One of the 2 rooms of this small museum was under renovation when we visited, so we got to see only a portion of the collection, which includes many of the signature works of both Remington and Russel...  more »

  • Nice museum, but completely botched experience due to rude workers. For something like the arts which struggles with funding and interest, you think they would be careful to avoid condescending, unnecessarily rude employees. Won't be back.
  • Wonderful art, friendly and knowledgeable staff and docents. A great way to spend some time in Sundance Square... and it's FREE!
  • This small art museum features the work of Frederic Remington who is widely known for his contribution to the mystic and allure of the "wild west" in the American concious. I had never seen his work before and was intrigued by the beauty of the art. I especially enjoyed the free Gallery Guide given to us by the staff inside the museum. Her friendly smile and eagerness to invite us in was a welcomed advantage. Unfortunately, I cannot convey the same gratitude to the roaming security guard inside the gallery. When we first arrived, he loudly scolded my 12-year old son for standing too close to the artwork. As I'm attempting to build an appreciation for art in my child, this deflated my son immediately and he sat down on the bench, uninterested in the remainder of our visit. As we toured throughout the rest of the gallery, this same guard continued to loudly converse with two other patrons for almost our entire visit. I'm okay with random conversation about the art, but there is an etiquette demanded in a quiet gallery like this. His laughing and loud conversation with this older couple distracted from our experience. As I was half way through the gallery, I leaned into look at a very small pencil drawing. I turned to see this guard coming up with obvious intention to scold me for standing too close. I had enough of this guy and called for my wife and son to depart. The guard actually swallowed his speech as I called for my wife to leave. It was a bit humorous. I've been to countless art museums, including World Class museums, and at times stand within 12" of priceless art to see the brush strokes and how time has affected the peice. I've never experienced such oppressing security in a place or been told to stand away from the art like I was here. I'm an adult that respects art and have control over my body to avoid touching the peice. Perhaps this collection needs to be placed in a secure vault or behind stantions if they have such concerns over people standing too close to it.
  • An excellent small museum, especially if you like Western art. What this museum lacks in size it makes up for in downtown convenience. Plus, admission is free.
  • Good for a 20-60 minute detour while walking around downtown Fort Worth. It is an art Museum so not that great for kids.
