A Must-See Western Art Museum

The Whitney Western Art Museum in Cody, Wyoming, is one of the founding museums at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Viewed as one of the best western art museums in the country, it houses numerous works from artists like Charlie Russell, Frederic Remington, Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, and other traditional and contemporary artists.

The Whitney is a must-see in the Yellowstone area — it’s a great place to learn the connection between art and life.

Introducing our new digital guide!

The Whitney has recently unveiled a new digital guide, accessible through Bloomberg Connects, a free arts and culture app created by Bloomberg Philanthropies. Now visitors—in person in the Whitney at the Center of the West or from anywhere in the world—can access the Whitney’s world-class art collection and special exhibitions through the app.

We’re excited that the Whitney is the first museum in Wyoming to join the app, which features free digital guides to more than 250 museums, galleries, gardens, and other cultural spaces around the world.

Click the “Find out more” button for instructions on downloading and using the guide.
