American Museum of Western Art
The entire legend of the American Far West is charted in the American Museum of Western Art by over 300 paintings and sculptures exhibiting bison, Native-American tribes, soldiers, trappers and cow-boys. This museum, opened in 2010, is housed in an elegant 1880 Victorian edifice that was once a brothel. Now the property of oil and railway magnate, Phillip Anschutz, this collection of private art of extraordinary quality showcases the regional art.
