Trip Planner: USA / Georgia / Cartersville / Booth Western Art Museum
Booth Western Art Museum, located in Cartersville, Georgia, is a museum dedicated to the Western United States; one of only two museums of its kind in the Southeastern United States, the other being the James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, FL. The Booth opened its doors in August 2003 with 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2) of contemporary art, illustration, movie posters, Civil War art, Indigenous Art and depiction, Presidential portraits and letters, authentic stagecoaches, and an interactive hands-on gallery for children based on a working ranch. A 40,000-square-foot (3,700 m2) expansion, complete in October 2009, doubled the Museum’s exhibition space allowing for even more Western artwork to be displayed. Now at 120,000 square feet (11,000 m2), Booth Museum is the second largest art museum in Georgia, and houses the largest permanent exhibition space for Western art in the country, with examples of early Western artists such as George Caitlin, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, and others. However, the core of the collection is built around living masters of traditional Western imagery such as Howard Terpning, Ken Riley, and G. Harvey, as well as more contemporary artists like Ed Mell, Thom Ross, Donna Howell-Sickles, Kim Wiggins and others.To visit Booth Western Art Museum and other attractions in Cartersville, use our Cartersville trip builder site.

This place is absolutely amazing. Plan to spend several hours here. You can take a break midday and have a nice lunch downtown. There are so many awe inspiring paintings, sculptures, and exhibits...

I thought it was a very good experience. The people that took up tickets were very kind and courteous. The overall atmosphere was very organized. I enjoyed the exhibits. especially enjoyed the Kenny Rogers photograph experience. Due to intellectual property restrictions I was only able to put two photos out that fall under public domain.
Our dental team from Colony Square Dental Associates in midtown Atlanta recently enjoyed a wonderful guided group tour recently at the Booth Western Art Museum for a team day excursion. Our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Barry, was both pleasant and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed this gem of an art museum. We are fortunate in Georgia to have such a world class collection of western art and we highly encourage everyone to visit. Thank you Barry and The Booth Museum for your hospitality!
