At 120,000 square feet, the Booth is an architectural wonder - designed to resemble a modern pueblo and constructed from Bulgarian limestone. The Booth’s permanent collection of Western art, Presidential portraits and letters, and Civil War art allows visitors to "See America’s Story" - in paintings, sculpture, photography and artifacts. Sagebrush Ranch is an award-winning, hands-on experience and interactive children’s gallery.
Visitors can also experience American heritage through several annual events, plus lectures, programming, and exhibition openings. In addition to educational opportunities for adults, the Booth offers a wide variety of educational tours for school children, ranging in age from pre-K through High School. All programs are interdisciplinary and cover social studies, language arts, visual arts, and/or STEAM.
