Welcome to The Brinton Museum!
The Museum is currently closed for the winter until mid-April 2014.
We invite you to experience the lifestyle of a 1920s and 30s gentleman’s working ranch through a guided tour of The Brinton Museum’s Main Ranch House, view the featured art exhibitions and the Native American Collection in the Gallery and take a stroll around the well-kept grounds and outbuildings and Little Goose Creek Lodge.
The Ranch House on the Quarter Circle A Ranch, on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1892 by William Moncreiffe, renovated and enlarged by Bradford Brinton in 1927-28, and opened to the public as a memorial to Western art and history through 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.
Helen Brinton named the institution she established to honor her brother the Bradford Brinton Memorial. Her intent was to preserve the Quarter Circle A Ranch Lands and the Brintons’ collection of fine art, furnishings, historic and Native American artifacts and make them accessible to the public. Her desire was that it be a source of education and enjoyment to all visitors, regardless of nationality, race, color or creed.
Our mission therefore is to preserve, maintain and interpret the institution’s holdings (including the land) to serve as a tie for succeeding generations to the pioneer glories of the West and of the State of Wyoming in particular as stated in Miss Brinton’s will.
