The Leanin' Tree Museum of Western Art is definitely off the beaten path on a back street in the Gunbarrel area of northwest Boulder. But it is definitely worth a trip, and especially so if entertaining out-of-town guests who enjoy Western Art. It has a great collection of western US -themed paintings and statues. And - it is all free... More

The owner started and runs a greeting card printing business and the print shop and grounds also is used to house this extensive collection.

What a wonderful western art collection, sculptures and paintings. It is better than most museum shows. Plus you get a discount on Leanin' tree cards that you buy while you are there.

The Leanin' Tree Museum is a wonderful opportunity to show out-of-town guests the unique art on display for all to enjoy. Also, the gift shop is an inviting stop for the original cards produced by the company.

If you go to Celestial Tea factory, the Leanin' Tree Museum and card shop is just a short ride from there. Upon arriving you enter beautiful gardens embellished with some of the best bronze sculptures we have ever seen. The animal's and bird's come alive in their setting. The museum is comprised of 2 floors of fabulous art and sculptures.... More

The art museum had an interesting collection of western art, including a lot of sculptures (indoors and out). The gift shop had a lot of great finds, interesting and unique items that were reasonably priced. Most items are made in the US, with many made in CO. Don't miss the free tour of the factory!
