We made a concerted effort to go to the Museum of Western Art to see the special exhibit from Joe Herring's collection of historical photos of early Kerrville. The exhibit was quite a treat. So much has changed, and some buildings are still there. I was fascinated. This small museum is a real gem. If you are in Kerrville, it is a must see.

Wonderful museum filled with fantastic art and sculptures. We arrived right as they were opening at 10 am and Fred gave us a guided tour. He is very knowledgeable and tells the greatest stories about some of the pieces of art and sculpture. Well worth the trip!

I could spend days here. ..this place is fascinating. From the Michael Jackson western outfit that he wore in the music video "I shot the sheriff" to the live audience participation dancing on the bottom floor. .this place will not disappoint !

Thank you for writing, although we do believe your review is meant for a different museum since we only have one floor and do not have any Michael Jackson's outfits.

We hope, however, that you'll come see us if you're ever in Kerrville, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

Sincerely,
