  • A fun place to learn local history and enjoy Western art. My kids had an enjoyable time. I am grateful to the volunteer for his help making our experience a great one. We will definitely go again.
  • Wonderful museum. If you love Western art this place is great. Lower floor is great for kids.
  • We were there for the Cowgirl Up show. Fantastic women artists. Be sure to visit the permanent old town display in the basement.
  • Really nice museum offering a good glimpse into the lives of the first settlers to the Wickenburg area. Beautiful portraits of the Indian people during the late 1800s. In the small building there is currently a saddle collection featuring small salesman scaled replicas of the different saddles various types of people would have used; e.g. saddles used by: Indian Warrior, Indian Maiden, US Calvary, White Women, Children, Cowboys, Missionaries, etc. The differences between them are very interesting and each saddle is hand made by a Master Saddle Maker (sorry, I forgot his name.) All in all, it's a must see for $10.00
  • Great little museum filled with life-sized recreations of life in bygone era. Wonderful art and saddle exhibits. Helpful, knowledgeable people. A great place to visit.
