I think it’s my favorite museum, and in Fort Worth that’s saying something! The Sid Richardson Museum of Western Art is an impressive collection of Frederic Remington and Charles Russell paintings and sculptures. It’s not paintings of the glamourous old west we see in movies; it’s the tough lives and harsh conditions of the real, old west, but it is eloquently depicted by these two, famous artists. So much so, that it seems to come alive as you view it. If you’re old enough to remember when the phone books had pictures on the front of them, you will probably recognize some of these paintings. That’s where you’ve seen them before.
The museum is conveniently located in downtown, and it’s the only museum open on Mondays. It’s a Fort Worth attraction you definitely should not miss.
