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 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.
