The museum facility is nice and the art fills one floor. The art work includes one Bierstadt, two Remingtons, and the rest is by artists you haven’t heard of any many listed as “artist unknown.” Allow one hour.

Great collection. Worth a trip and just a few blocks past the capital. They also had a gift shop with interesting stuff and well priced.

The museum was nice and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant. The gift shop is one of the nicest I have ever seen. They have a variety of items. Everyone will find something. Worth going to.

This small museum has some very nice permanent pieces in the collection, but it is the special exhibits that are the most compelling reason for a visit.
