  • Fanastic museum with loads of artifacts from the wild west. Rather too much modern art but the original photograohs were wonderful, as were the original Indian clothes and the cowboy relics

  • The Western Spirit Museum was a wonderful experience. The photography by Edward Curtis is outstanding along with the history of the Native American Indian tribes. In addition beautiful art work and a very clever photo opportunity. Make plenty of time, we spent more than two hours viewing and completely missed the second floor. Ooops!😣😂
  • Fantastic and interesting. I learned something new in every display. Never as you would think it would be, but instead smart well-curated material that unravels the complex story of the West visually over the last 300 years. Incredible collections
