Sid Richardson Museum
|Location||309 Main Street|
Fort Worth, Texas 76102 (United States)
The Sid Richardson Museum is located in historic Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas, and features permanent and special exhibitions of paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, as well as some additional late 19th-century works about the American West. The works, reflecting both the art and reality of the American West, are the legacy of the late oilman and philanthropist, Sid Williams Richardson, and were acquired by him from 1942 until his death in 1959. The collection also includes works by Oscar E. Berninghaus, Charles F. Browne, Edwin W. Deming, William Gilbert Gaul, Peter Hurd, Frank Tenney Johnson, William R. Leigh, Peter Moran and Charles Schreyvogel.
Opened in 1982, the museum is housed in a replica of an 1895 building in an area of restored turn of-the-century buildings in downtown Fort Worth. The site was chosen by the Sid Richardson Foundation trustees both for its convenience to downtown visitors and workers and for the historic atmosphere of the area.
The Museum offers tours and a variety of educational programs and events for adults, children and families including lectures, movies, hands on studio activities, and camps. Tours are available to visitors, school and community groups. Admission is free.
In 2006 the Sid Richardson Museum (formerly the Sid Richardson Collection of Western Art) reopened in its new building which features expanded exhibition, educational and retail space and facilities.
