  • We got a tour from the nicest young man. He really know his history! The artwork was a plus. I loved viewing all sorts of paintings and drawings.  more »
  • Nice gallery along with antiques in former mill built in 1860. We were allowed to explore al three floors on our own. Also a large collection of bronzes. Would not recommend for children .  more »
  • A charming small museum with primarily Western-themed paintings and sculptures. Happily there aren't many "hillsides covered with bluebonnets" here; most of the art focuses on working cowboy life and wildlife, with a few modern sculptures. The building itself is interesting, having served as the local hospital in the past. Be sure to go in the back rooms, where you see the 19th-century construction with exposed rough-hewn beams. The docents are knowledgeable and very helpful. It's not the Kimbell, and doesn't pretend to be, so plan to enjoy it next time you're in that area.
  • An excellent museum that goes on room after room. Some pieces are better than others, but the buildings are amazing. And you'll discover some great pieces if you look closely.
