On our way to Yellowstone National Park we spent the night in Sheridan and had the opportunity to visit Brinton which should be a stop on everyone's schedule, give it a try.

This museum is a must for anyone travelling in or through this area - especially if you have an interest in western and Native American art. It has a superb collection, in a beautiful setting.

I visited this Museum earlier this year and will go back again! I highly recommend touring the Mansion, very well kept and excellent art to see. So much history here.
