Mars, Jr. Building houses one of the most significant and extensive 19th, 20th and 21st century Western and American Indian Art collections in the U.S. featuring Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, Thomas Moran, Edward Borein, Winold Reiss, and the largest Hans Kleiber collection in the world.

  • This is an amazing site for a Museum. It is out of the way, but so worth the journey. They have done an excellent job of showcasing the exhibits and the environment is relaxing, which is perfect for a day at a Museum. The Big Horn mountains stand as silent guardians with the Museum nestled in their foothills. Worth the trip and the time spent.
