  • Great museum, great art. True to it's promotional advertisements. Super people to welcome and serve guests and an unexpected modernistic reflection of art, history and nature. The restaurant served delicious food at a reasonable price in an awesome setting. Thank you team Bradford Brinton Museum. R & J from Oregon
  • 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.
