Museum of the West


Do you want to find out about the real Wild West?

Experience western Americana at its best through thousand years of history. “Ride” in a stagecoach, “fly” a 1958 Cessna from Walker Field, or gaze upon an ancient cup and ladle from the Anasazi. Study Ute and Fremont Rock Art, see the real firearms that outlaws used, sit in a one-room schoolhouse, and visit the Pastime saloon – all at the Museum of the West!

Our special exhibit currently in the Temporary Gallery is Famous, Framed, and Folk Art: Eclectic Art from the Museum of the West’s Collections. See more here.
