We visited this museum on May 24th. There is free parking across the street. In the garden around the museum are men size sculptures of cowboys and native Americans. After obtaining an admission ticket you can see a movie in the theater. It gives you an overview of the collection and what you can expect of this museum. There are... More

For a museum in a small town, we were surprised and pleased to see the beautifully displayed exhibits of paintings and sculpture along with helpful information about the origin and subject matter of each piece. It was well worth the admission price and the time we spent visiting.

Great museum for all types of western art from paintings, sculptures, mixed media, historical artifacts fron cannon to stage coach to American Indian. Special exhibits change frequently. Today was sculptures from Navaro, Ansel Adams photos, a special exhibit on making the Kennedy Camelot and local grade school art. Regular art is there from landscapes to pioneer to civil war to...

This private collection of western art is stunning. It's the largest western museum in the world by square footage! The outdoor sculptures are as impressive as the artwork indoors so don't miss those.

This local gem is well done. It is unusual to think of finding a world class western art museum in this part of the country, but here it is. From the layout of the facility grounds to the variety of the interior rooms, there is something here for everyone. Add free parking in the lot across the street, and all... More

Very educational as well as interesting collections. So many perspectives represented - that of Native Americans, cowboys, Buffalo Soldiers, pioneers, also an entire room of presidential memorabilia. For an overview, I first took a very informative and free tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide - then explored the entire museum on my own. Returned for a second day - it... More

As a resident of Cartersville, I have been to the Booth a number of times over the years. We really are lucky to have such a nice museum in town. I would definitely recommend checking it out. The permanent collection has some very nice paintings by very well known artists, and they often have great exhibitions as well. I dropped... More

The Booth Western Museum is something you would expect to see in New York, Boston or another really big city. Beautiful modern building with extraordinary pieces of art. I believe the museum is associated with the Smithsonian. This is a perfect day trip from Atlanta or Chattanooga. The museum has special showings and currently has an Ansel Adams show and... More
