From the Director: To Our Visitors
First time visitors to The Brinton Museum will find that their idea about us more than likely only covers a small portion of what we are here at The Brinton Museum. We are not just a fine art museum housed within an elegant state-of-the-art building, but a genuine historic site containing all the elements of a Gentleman’s Working Ranch from the 1930s located on some of the most beautiful ranchland in the West.
Yes, we have a fine collection of Western Art, and much of it can be seen in its original context within the Brinton home.
True, To Honor the Plains Nations is a beautiful exhibition of first-quality American Indian Art, but few visitors realize the deep spiritual nature of our Native People and how this spirituality drove them to create such exquisite items.
There are many other unexpected discoveries awaiting our visitors!
