Sid Richardson Museum78 Votes Currently Closed
This museum located in the historical landmark of Sundance Square mainly houses the fantastic works of Frederick Remington and Charles F. Russell. There you will also find a few later 19th century works relating to the West. All these exhibits focusing mainly on the American West art and reality are the private collections of Sid Williams Richardson. He was an oilman and philanthropist.
The museum was initially opened in 1982 and then again shifted to a different location 3 years later. This is a non- profit organization and hosts many events and programs to impart historical knowledge amongst people, especially school children.

Sid Richardson Museum Reviews & Ratings
It's a FREE Museum, so was the art museum. Fort Worth, Texas is a treasure no one has told me about!🤔😢 I'm glad the Monet exhibit drew me here and I explored further! Anyway....beautiful western art!
What a wonderful collection of Western art. We enjoyed both the pantings & the history behind Mr. Richardson and his collection. Definitely recommend to all coming to Ft. Worth.
We just stumbled onto the Sid Richardson Museum strolling around downtown Ft. Worth on a nice late winter afternoon. One of us (me) is a huge Charlie Russell fan so were for sure going to go in and see what sort of a place this was when we noticed it was free. An art museum in downtown Fr. Worth with originals paintings by the two most famous western artists of all time and free!!! That alone is worth five stars. The museum is small - basically just two rooms but the collection is incredible. The staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The building is entered through the gift shop (of course! - I think it's some sort of Museum rule that the patrons must enter or leave through the gift shop) and the gift shop was almost as much fun as the museum. It was small also but filled with some very nice items, many locally made, and quite reasonably priced. It also had a small but very nice collection of western books, art and otherwise. Don't go in looking for a souvenir trinket. I didn't notice one in the whole shop. A downtown Ft. Worth must see.
The ladies in the front made this an enjoyable visit for my 4 and 7 year old grandkids.
A gem. Cannot adequately recommend this gallery more enthusiastically
