Inviting Fresh Perspective on Western Art, History & Culture

Wyoming is the West at its best, with natural riches and a history so deep it stirs your soul. The Brinton Museum in the Bighorn Mountains is a historic working ranch that celebrates the spirit of the state. Its rare collection of Western, American and American Indian art and artifacts tells a distinctive story of the American West and offers an intimate glimpse into the life and lifestyle of Bradford Brinton, a well-educated Western gentleman rancher, businessman and avid collector. Its contemporary collection complements and expands upon his vision. Between the Historic Brinton Ranch House and the new Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Building it presents them both through a new lens and beckons guests from near and far to be transformed and inspired by exquisite art in an ideal setting.

The Brinton Museum’s collections include:

  • Historic and Contemporary Western Art
  • American Indian Art and Artifacts
  • Historic Photography
  • Rare Books and Documents
  • Period Furnishings
  • Ranch Outbuildings
  • Vehicles and Farm Implements
