Booth Western Art Museum Reviews
This is a world-class museum. I could spend hours here each time I go. Their sculptures are amazing and their Native American displays are some of my favorite. If you haven't gone - GO! Go soon!
This is our second time to this museum. My parents were visiting from the Midwest and we thought they would enjoy it. They did! It's not too big, and all of the displays are first class! A fun, historical hidden gem in Georgia! Give the cafe a try, too.
