This museum is mainly devoted to paintings of the old West by Remington and Russell. It's only two rooms but the background of each artwork is described in the guide. The staff is very knowledgable. Even the security guard gave us interesting information. Admittance is free, and it is located right off of Sundance Square.

This is a great little museum in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. They have awesome cowboy art. Visit around the Christmas holidays to shop for unique western Christmas ornaments.

We visited several museums on our recent trip, but this was our favorite. We loved the western theme of Remington and Russell. Pleasant and informative docent.

This is a wonderful little museum near Sundance Square. It doesn't take long to walk through but houses some fantastic western art. Well worth viewing and it's free. Make it part of a date night.

From the outside it looks like a gift shop, which it is, but when you enter you will see that it is most definitely a museum, too! Nice collection of paintings, sculpture and artifacts and it's all for free. The gift shop is nice too.

What an awesome museum especially since I am a Huge fan of both artist's Mr. Remington and Mr. Russell(My eye's have consumed here before); and this museum contain's some off their best work. Saturday 11 February '17; like two days ago; there was an artist/actor doing an in-person characterization of Charles Russell's wife, Nancy. Very nice 20 minute presentation. However,... More

This is a great way to spend an hour on a cold day in Fort Worth. Really interesting art work in a very pleasant building. This should be on everyone's itinerary that is going to Sundance Square.

We walked the small museum, which is free, and the paintings are just stunning. A few are truly great. Reproductions are sold at very reasonable prices for framed art.

Went in my chance and was happily surprised. Nice small gallery with interesting painting of the west. Free admission with a guide that tells you what every painting is about. It also has a nice collection of Fort Worth and Texas gifts that are not too expensive.
