Step Back into the American West,
Where Art and History Come Together.
It is the mission of the American Museum of Western Art to promote the public’s understanding and appreciation of art depicting the American West from the early 1800s through the present day. The art presented is intended to give the public a better understanding and appreciation of the character, history, and beauty of the American West and the peoples, individuals, and ideas that transformed it over time.
The Anschutz Collection offers guided and self-guided tours of the museum on Mondays and Wednesdays and tickets must be purchased in advance. In addition to guided and self-guided tours, The Anschutz Collection accommodates school tours and group tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which can be arranged using the forms provided in Visitor Information.
The Anschutz Collection offers educational programs including our monthly special topic conversations, Artful Insights. Please see our upcoming programs listing below or visit our Tickets page for more information.
