Frederic Remington Art Museum
The Frederic Remington Art Museum is dedicated to the collection, exhibition, preservation and interpretation of the art and archives of the accomplished artist Frederic Remington, an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who was well-known for his depictions of the Old American West — concentrating primarily on the last part of the 19th-century American West with images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry. He didn’t live here, but it is the best place to get to know who he was and what he accomplished.
The Frederic Remington Art Museum houses a vast collection of original Remington paintings, sketches and sculptures, as well as a wide variety of personal items — including his easel, sculpting stand and props he used — that serve to provide an in-depth look into not only his art, but also his life.
Many of Remington’s most famous bronzes and oil paintings can be found in the Albert Newell Gallery — like Charge of the Rough Riders, The Howl of the Weather and Old-Times Plain Fight. The Addie Newell Gallery displays exhibits of his North Country and Canadian watercolors, sketches, and illustrations, while his personal possessions and memorabilia can be found on display throughout the museum.
Just down the street from the museum in another historic building is Kid’s Place, also known as The Eva Remington Education Center. Kid’s Place offers interactive exhibits and activity space designed to engage museum visitors of all ages in another exploration of Remington’s life and art.
