Saddlebags

Be sure to ask about getting a Saddlebag for your child during your visit to the Museum. The Saddlebag is filled with family activities to be done throughout the Museum to help get your child actively engaged in the art. When selecting a Saddlebag, children have the option of three themes: “Cowboy”, “Native American”, or “Presidents”. Saddlebags are FREE and can be checked out from the information desk on the main floor of the Museum.

Sagebrush Ranch

Sagebrush Ranch is a fun, hands-on place for children and their parents to play and learn. This gallery provides children with the opportunity to touch and interact with the exhibits and allows kids to be kids. Each activity is a learning opportunity and is themed around art and the West. Rodeo Joe, the Ranch Foreman, welcomes visitors of all ages to the Ranch but reminds visitors that Sagebrush Ranch is designed for children, but parents need to stay with their children at all times.

Audio Tour & Kids’ Audio Tour

For an additional $2, you can check out the Museum audio tour or Kids’ audio tour. The audio tour includes extended information on the artwork and, in many cases, includes information on the art from the artist. The Kids’ audio tour comes with a companion brochure complete with information cards about some of the artwork and artists, which correspond with the audio. Both audio tours are discounted at $1 for Booth members, and are free for Friend level members and up.
