It's always been on my mind to see this museum. We decided to go see the exhibition of Edward Curtis's photography featuring Native American women. This is more than worth the 45 minute drive from Atlanta. Our first impression was of a modern building around which is a lovely sculpture garden, featuring traditional imagery and an amazing totem pole from... More

Save the cost of a plane ticket out west. The Booth Western Art Museum has some of the finest western artwork by some of the best western artists.

We happened on this art museum by accident and were blown away at the quality of the exhibits. This is one of the best western art museums we have visited. The displays were a wonderful collection of bronze sculptures, paintings and 3-demensional art (baskets, pottery, life-size painted plastic/resin animals, beaded work, clay sculptures, life-size human figures, etc.). The exhibit hall... More

We went to the museum through a school field trip. The tour guide for our school group was great at keeping it fun & entertaining for all the kids. The museum is beautiful.

Booth Western Art Museum is a fascinating place. It has all the famous western painters and sculptors. It does a wonderful job of displaying early life on the frontier. When we were there you could see an actual stage coach - which looked mighty uncomfortable. This place is a great place to visit, especially on a rainy day when you... More
