Not initially on our day trip agenda, I decided to take a detour on our way home from a day trip to visit a museum that I glanced over on an email that recently crossed my computer. With only a little over an hour to discover the multiple floors of the museum, we conquered the high points and determined a... More

As a local, I've visited several times. I remember my first time there....I was completely astonished at the quality of the artwork. It is simply amazing! There are actual stagecoaches there, local art, and then the main attractions - Civil War, Indian, and Western Art. There is also a Presidential exhibit along with "temporary" exhibits throughout the year. In the... More

Took out of town guests to the museum which has doubled in size since our last visit several years ago. Great guided tour thanks to Marlow! Don't miss the 15-minute film.

It was love on first visit. Instead of the hour originally intended, I spent the entire afternoon in that beautiful place and now make it a fixed item on my "to visit" - whenever I travel to the US. Their collection so captures the pioneer spirit of the US, life in the great plains and the hard work of cowboys.... More

I go every Tuesday for lunch and look at the exhibits. I have been over 100 times and never get tired of it.

Great museum. Despite the narrow focus of the Museum, the collection and its viewing spaces are wonderful. The collection of "contemporary" art is impressive. The use of space in the Museum enhances the visual experience tremendously. My only preference is that the collection of Native American materials be expanded so as to make the museum a more comprehensive presentation of... More

We've heard of Booth forever - they are big supported of public broadcasting, thank you very much. Booth has a good collection of paintings, sculptures, and assorted other items. They can become repetitive with multiple works by the same artist displayed together. Very worth a visit.

I have told many people you could pick this museum up and locate it in New York, LA, Chicago, and it would be right at home. It is top shelf! If you love the West and the history of it, you will enjoy a visit here. I would put it on your list of to do things that will surprise... More

It's always been on my mind to see this museum. We decided to go see the exhibition of Edward Curtis's photography featuring Native American women. This is more than worth the 45 minute drive from Atlanta. Our first impression was of a modern building around which is a lovely sculpture garden, featuring traditional imagery and an amazing totem pole from... More
