    I went to a social event at the Museum of Western Art, after not having visited it for several years. Maybe they were between exhibits, but the lack of really good artwork , in my opinion , was surpri...  more »

    Okay. So I step into this brightly lit museum and begin to look around. The air is cool inside, and it feels so good. It is a stinging, 105 degrees outside. Out of nowhere appears a tall gentleman by ...  more »

    Have been twice. The art was high quality and they had some famous artists as well as some regional ones too. The staff was kind and helpful. I was on my honeymoon the second time I went and they gave us free admission. The souvenir shop is neat as well. I'd recommend dropping by if you're in the area.

    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.

    Worth an hour to walk around and see the cowboy art.
