    This museum may be a hidden gem, but only if you can find it and only if it is open. We asked at least three people about the Sculpture Ranch, including one—I’m not kidding—at the Chamber of Commerce ...  more »

    I've visited the Sculpture ranch twice now. While the drive thru the ranch with metal and stone sculptures is nice, what I enjoyed most was the indoor exhibit. At the time of my visit, not sure if the display changes, the indoor exhibit was an amazing display of hand painted artwork that presented the illusion of depth and three dimensions. Even more, unlike many museums, this one allowed me to bring my professional camera gear in, and shoot photos of the art work. They asked me to email them any images I took that captured the three dimensional effects of the images in a unique way. The museum staff were very friendly and informative. I would return again, with friends to introduce them to this unique hidden place that many don't know exists.

    It was wonderful but is no longer open. The Benini's have moved.
