  • What a great museum, the paintings were amazing, and a beautiful modern building for a change, very enjoyable afternoon spent here, wish I could have smuggled one of those paintings or bronzes out LOL
  • Fantastic paintings tracing the Lewis & Clark Expedition---best I've ever seen. Cowboy Artists of America exhibit is great, too. If you love western art and history, you can't help but enjoy this beautiful museum!
  • A MUST SEE MUSEUM!!! you will be amazed at the paintings, sculptures and historical items that tell the story of how the old west came to be, first you'll find out how Louis and Clark began there journey and the obstacles they had to endure to reach the pacific ocean. then as you journey deeper into the museum it tells you about how the cowboy era came to be , don't forget to go up stairs to the second level you WILL BE AMAZED at everything you see. i loved the old maps of the United States and the trackers that made the west there home. i will definitely return with to this museum with my friends so they can be awestruck at the well told tale of the old west.
  • cool place
  • We went on a field trip here. Both museum and staff were wonderful.
