Memorable icons of the American West come to life at the Museum of Western Art, in the form of Cowboys, Native American Indians, Mountain Men and more. Nestled in the midst of the Hill Country, the museum is one of Kerrville’s most famous attractions, and is dedicated to preserving, honoring, and promoting the heritage of the Old West through art.
Included in the museum’s exhibits and permanent collection are paintings and sculptures from such notable artists as Roy Andersen, Oreland Joe, Fritz White, and Wayne Baize. The museum also houses authentic western artifacts and the ‘Journey West Children’s Gallery’: a hands-on display of prairie life on a wagon train, complete with a teepee, a covered wagon and period costumes.
Along with special exhibits, an ‘Artist of the Month’ program, and a 4,000-volume research library, the museum frequently hosts lectures, workshops and other arts-educational events for adults and children alike.
