Fort Worth, Texas is known as the beginning of the West – and western lore is very much a part of the fabric of this city.  For a quick look at the Old West in a gem of a museum in a city full of great museums, you should visit the Sid Richardson Museum in downtown, Fort Worth.  Here’s my review!

About jetsytravels

I travel a lot and want to travel even more. I really enjoy it! I have no travel expertise or special knowledge. I do have opinions, observations, impressions and photographs to share. If I am not particularly edifying - perhaps I will be entertaining! Who am I? I have an MBA and founded a catalog business about 17 years ago, called Isla, now also online as IslaOnline.com. I am a wife, and mother of two grown (nearly) sons. I split my residential time between Puerto Rico and Wisconsin.

    Thanks, Betsy, for posting this. I love small excellent museums and they are all over our great country! I look forward to visiting this museum the next time I’m in TX.

    Here’s another great one for you if you have time: the National WASP (Women Air Service Pilots) WW II Museum in Sweetwater, TX. It’s about 200 miles from Ft. Worth, and very interesting. http://waspmuseum.org/

    Also, have you ever seen a National Geographic guidebook called Crossing America: National Geographic’s guide to the Interstates? It has a lot of great smaller museums and other cool things to do within 20 minutes of the interstates. My family and I have found amazing sites with this excellent book! Hope you’re having a great trip, and thanks again for the great museum tip. I love the Old West, also.

    Best, Maureen O’Grady
