At Booth Western Art Museum, a world-class experience awaits. Visitors to this 120,000 square foot museum can See America’s Story - the land, the people, the struggles, the dreams, and the legends - in paintings, sculpture, photography and artifacts. As the second largest art museum in Georgia, the collection includes a wide variety of Western art, a unique collection of Presidential letters and photographs, and an extensive display of Civil War art. Artists such as Frederic Remington, Charles Russell and George Catlin are showcased in our American West Gallery – which serves as a great jumping off point to explore the rest of the collection which includes mostly contemporary artists like Nelson Boren, Thom Ross, Ed Mell and others. Our premiere collection of contemporary Civil War art houses work by some of the leading historical artists of all time including Mort Künstler and Don Troiani. Located just north of Atlanta on I-75 in Cartersville, Georgia, Booth Museum is an architectural showcase and houses the largest permanent exhibition space for Western art in the country. In addition to housing more than a dozen galleries of the museum’s permanent collection, three temporary galleries feature 10 to 12 exhibitions per year. The Museum also houses a research library, hands-on children’s area, gift shop and Café – serving breakfast and lunch. In addition to Seeing America’s Story through art, visitors to Booth Museum may experience much of America’s heritage through our annual events, lectures and exhibition openings. Each March the Southeastern Cowboy Gathering features traditional Cowboy food, music and poetry; Civil War Comes Alive!, held each April, highlights what life was like for the soldiers – on both sides – during our nation’s greatest conflict; and each October, the Southeastern Cowboy Festival & Symposium features Native American dancing, gun fight reenactments, art history lectures, a Western marketplace and much more. The museum also welcomes visiting artists and scholars to speak at monthly lectures and at exhibition openings held throughout the year. At Booth Western Art Museum, things don’t just hang on the wall; things happen…. So plan your visit soon for a world-class experience. Learn more at www.boothmuseum.org.

Mission: The Booth Western Art Museum will educate, entertain, and inspire guests through the exploration of Western art, popular culture, and American heritage in a welcoming environment.

Really enjoyed this evening at Booth Western Art Museum. Missed seeing a painting of Wild Bill Hickok though. But, seeing a bust in the gift shop for 1,800 made up for it. Thank you for all your guys hard work. Civil War room brought out the tears. The paintings made it more clear than ever.
Spent this morning at the Booth Western Museum. Very much impressed.
Spent this morning at the Booth Western Art Museum. Very impressive. I must return.
If I come on free museum day do I still need to buy a ticket to the Warhol exhibit?
There is a special show running now in Chadd's Ford, PA - the Wyeths. It will then travel to some other galleries - all in the northern midwest. I wish "someone" could bring it to Georgia!
We had a great time & Kage Milner was one happy little cowboy.
I really liked the architecture of the building. This is a nice sculpture and placement.
I loved this sculpture.
We visited for the first time today. We really enjoyed it!
I was at your amazing museum this summer and thoroughly enjoyed all the exhibits. I was drawn to the painting of the presidents and the sculpture of the native Indian, but when I glanced down the hall and looked back, the view of the Native Indian with his hands tied in front of the presidents filled me with powerful emotions. This is an image I will never forget. Thank you for a great afternoon, Sally Carey
One of my favorite exhibits.
