  • I didn't think I was a lover of Western (US) art, but the Booth Western Art Museum, a Smithsonian Institute Affiliate, proved me wrong. The permanent exhibits are wonderful: the portraits, landscapes ...  more »

  • Loved this museum since they had the Ansel Adams exhibit a few years ago... Not sure about the volunteers here. Last I was at the museum was August 2018. 90 degrees out that afternoon and I always have my water bottle (in a shoulder bag) with me. Got tickets and walked the entire first floor seeing all the art pieces, past multiple museum workers without any problems with my bottle. Then when we got to the second floor, while enjoying the art, a volunteer came up next to me and said "we don't allow water bottle in the museum". Not until I said "okay... Should I bring it back to my car?!", then he said "you can put it at the front desk." Really not that big a deal, but if you were to tell me water was not allowed, may be followed it up with a solution before needing me to ask. It's less rude and less offensive.
  • Like many other reviewers here, this place took me by surprise. If you are a western fan (I mean TV and movies), you MUST come here. The place is huge with thousands of paintings and sculptures. Some of the paintings are so realistic they look like 3D photos, but with more detail. Same is true of the sculptures. Also, there are lots of movie posters for western movies I never heard of before! This place is just unbelievable! I'll be going back, a lot.
  • This is an awesome place. I loved everything about it. The civil war exhibit was very good. The president's exhibit was outstanding. I read something on everyone of the presidents. Would definitely go back again. The picture attached is "The Cowboy".
  • What an awesome place that I didn't ever know about until this trip to Georgia. Definitely worth an afternoon to listen to the docents and learn about the artist's works that are on display. An awesome bonus is the presidential letters section!
  • This is a great museum with real stagecoaches and fantastic western art. There are interesting artifacts and statues of bronze and other metals. It is is in downtown Cartersville near some very good restaurants.
