Fascinating history of a great North Country epoch housed here through Remington's life here and in the West. I take ALL visitors here, and all are fascinated.... More

You probably think of Remington as a western artist, but his work was far more diverse. This small gem of a museum gives you a great sense of the man and his times.

Ogdensburg New York hosts a great museum of Remington's work. It is across the river from Canada and about 45 minutes from Ottawa, Ontario. Come visit...you won't be disappointed...and it is really a cheap price to go in.

This is a beautiful museum inside and out. The docents were phenomenal. every one of them! I never knew how much I did not know about Remington and his work. If you want to see a lot of Remington, learn how he created his techniques, witness the evolution of his art, then this is definitely worth a drive.

Lots of paintings and sculptures to look at, and not just Remington. Great history about Remington as well. Staff are very knowledgeable on all the artists displayed and are happy to share that knowledge. Beautiful location by the water.

Great reception and extremely informative intro to the Museum (Dave? - sorry if we got the name wrong). Since we collect repro Remington's it was nice to see that we had some really collectable sculptures. When the Canadian dollar is closer to par we will revisit to purchase one or more of the gift shop reproductions.

I remember the Remington as a child prior to the museum selling off its native American clothing and other artifacts to the Cody Museum in Wyoming. However, the sale coupled with donations provided the funds to erect a new wing that is environmentally safe for the paintings and other artworks on display. This upgrade was sorely needed and the results... More
