We were visiting Colorado in an off season and were scraping the bottom of the barrel looking for things to do. This museum was listed way down on trip advisors things to do in Boulder, but we were running out of options. This place is fantastic. I can' even think of enough superlatives for the art collection. We didn't even... More

I was not sure about this, but my wife really wanted to go. I was amazed at the quality and the number of art works on display. There is an outdoor sculpture garden with stunning sculptures. Especially of note, a full sized horse made from found metal objects, which was absolutely beautiful. Indoors, there is a large selection of paintings.... More

After taking the better known Celestial Seasonings tour, this was a surprising and nearby treat. The Leanin' Tree greeting card production plant is in what appears to be an industrial park, but adjacent to the plant is a wonderful two-floor museum and retail greeting card shop that should not be missed. Admission is free. The owner of the card company... More

We go at least twice a year to purchase a supply of card that we use year around. We definitely take our out of town guests there as well. We always enjoy looking at the art and the sculptures outdoors. We always find something we appreciate each time we review the art and sculptures. For a free museum, it's a... More

I love visiting this museum and just wondering around looking at the art. I have been many times. This time, I just went in to get cards. My visit was ruined because of the two employees behind the desk complaining about other people, their jobs, and other things. There were loud enough to hear around the corner!! I was truly... More

You won't find the older western artists (Frederic Remington for example) but you'd be hard put to find a better collection of 20th century western art. Give yourself at least an hour to check out the art. Time your visit for a free tour of the card factory (see website for times). These cards are at least as good as... More

Two filled floors of beautiful western art at the Leaning' Tree Headquarters. Didn't have time for the FREE greeting card factory tour. Artwork and outdoor sculpture garden was amazing. Admission is also free to the view artwork.

This free museum is a great place to see Western Art, especially if you are in the area already for the Celestial Seasonings Tour and the Shelby Car Museum. Bypass their kitschy shop until the end (or completely if you're not into that kind of thing) and head upstairs first. Some of the paintings are amazing and it's worth it... More

Do not miss this spot. Museum is free. Staff is helpful and friendly. There is art everywhere-inside and out As an artist, I truly appreciated the variety of Western art on display. There is a nice gift shop too!
