The Museum of Western Art opened on April 23, 1983, and was first known as the Cowboy Artists of America Museum. In the years since, thousands of visitors have walked the Museum galleries and have seen the West brought to life through the artwork on display. The hardworking cowboys, the Native Americans, women of the West, settlers, mountain men and others are featured through various themed exhibits. Through other displays, the history of famous ranches as well as other diverse aspects of our Western heritage, are shared with an ever-widening audience. In addition, area educators, students, writers, as well as the public make frequent use of the Museum's 3,000 volume Western art and history research library.
Finally, in all that it does, the Museum serves as a bridge between the past and the present, insuring that the legacy of the American West will be preserved for the future. We invite our guests to be part of that mission. Experience the West as it was and as it is at the Museum of Western Art ... Where the Legend Lives!
