This intimate museum on the River Walk bend is a delightful place to spend an hour or two in the Wild West, both the real and romanticized versions. The collection includes everything from ornate saddles to a wall of shiny spurs, from a re-created Wells Fargo stagecoach to cowboy-and-Indian–themed art. There’s a small sculpture garden at river level. The building alone is a stunner; it was the city’s first public library and once housed a circus museum. You may spend a good deal of time gazing up at the ornate ceilings and Art Deco light fixtures.
