The Sid Richardson Museum is located in historic Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas, and features permanent and special exhibitions of paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, as well as some additional late 19th-century works about the American West. The works, reflecting both the art and reality of the American West, are the legacy of the late oilman and philanthropist, Sid Williams Richardson, and were acquired by him from 1942 until his death in 1959. The collection also includes works by Oscar E. Berninghaus, Charles F. Browne, Edwin W. Deming, William Gilbert Gaul, Peter Hurd, Frank Tenney Johnson, William R. Leigh, Peter Moran and Charles Schreyvogel.
Opened in 1982, the museum is housed in a replica of an 1895 building in an area of restored turn of-the-century buildings in downtown Fort Worth. The site was chosen by the Sid Richardson Foundation trustees both for its convenience to downtown visitors and workers and for the historic atmosphere of the area.

The Museum offers tours and a variety of educational programs and events for adults, children and families including lectures, movies, hands on studio activities, and camps. Tours are available to visitors, school and community groups. Admission is free.

In 2006 the Sid Richardson Museum (formerly the Sid Richardson Collection of Western Art) reopened in its new building which features expanded exhibition, educational and retail space and facilities.

  • An incredible compilation of quality artworks that are so engaging and unique. An absolutely stunning presentation.  more »
  • While we were there, many visitors were told, albeit kindly, to step further back away from their paintings.....one man was so mad, he yelled at the guard & walked out. Oh well...... Massive...  more »

  • It's a FREE Museum, so was the art museum. Fort Worth, Texas is a treasure no one has told me about!🤔😢 I'm glad the Monet exhibit drew me here and I explored further! Anyway....beautiful western art!
  • We just stumbled onto the Sid Richardson Museum strolling around downtown Ft. Worth on a nice late winter afternoon. One of us (me) is a huge Charlie Russell fan so were for sure going to go in and see what sort of a place this was when we noticed it was free. An art museum in downtown Fr. Worth with originals paintings by the two most famous western artists of all time and free!!! That alone is worth five stars. The museum is small - basically just two rooms but the collection is incredible. The staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The building is entered through the gift shop (of course! - I think it's some sort of Museum rule that the patrons must enter or leave through the gift shop) and the gift shop was almost as much fun as the museum. It was small also but filled with some very nice items, many locally made, and quite reasonably priced. It also had a small but very nice collection of western books, art and otherwise. Don't go in looking for a souvenir trinket. I didn't notice one in the whole shop. A downtown Ft. Worth must see.
