  • Really enjoyed walking around while on a lunch date with my wife!
  • Best small town museum in Texas... better than most in big cities. AND FREE! Thank you Stark family. Western Art and sculpture... Remington, Russell! New Mexico... Georgia O'Keefe, Dunton... and an Audubon room! American Indian art, as well as the late 1800's to early 1900's photos and lithographs such as Edward Curtis are all rich and warm. Much more than we can describe. Friendly and professional staff, clean and architecturally overwhelming facility. They've got it all at the Stark. My highest recommendation, worth the trip.
