Welcome to The Brinton Museum!
A great story by Micah Schweizer of Wyoming Public Media about the museum which first aired June 12, 2015: The Brinton Museum on WPM
We invite you to experience the lifestyle of a 1920s and 30s gentleman’s working ranch. Take a guided tour of The Brinton Museum’s Main Ranch House, view the Native American Gallery and our featured art exhibitions in the gallery. Stroll around the grounds and outbuildings including Little Goose Creek Lodge, Mr. Brinton’s hunting cabin.
Now open: The New Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Building with four large galleries to explore American Indian and Western Art in a fascinating new environment.
Built in 1892 by William Moncreiffe, the Ranch House on the Quarter Circle Ă Ranch, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Bradford Brinton purchased the property in 1923. It opened to the public as a memorial to Western art and history through his sister Helen Brinton’s will in 1961. The Brintons’ collection, on display in its original setting, includes splendid artwork by Charles M. Russell, Frederic Remington, Edward Borein, Frank Tenney Johnson, Hans Kleiber & Bill Gollings and many others.
