  • This is a wonderful art museum representing the art featuring the life of cowboys and the western ranching lifestyle. Paintings and bronzes are well displayed. The museum was originally built to feature artists of Cowboy Artists of America (CAA), but now features other western artists as well. The building itself was designed by a prominent western architect and is the perfect showcase for the art. When we were there, there was a bronze sculptor in the casita as a visiting artist who talks with visitors and explain what it is he is doing. The grounds are beautiful and the gift store has a nice selection. A treasure in the middle of Hill Country.
  • Dishonest thieves. Took our admission money and forgot to tell us they removed all the art from the museum and stored it in a vault so they could have an invitation only art sale. Bait and switch, buyer beware.
  • Worth an hour to walk around and see the cowboy art.
  • Great place to look and shop.
  • I don't know how to remove the line under the title that says it is closed, but the museum is open as of 9/20/09
