You’ll be swept away by the beautiful setting and awed by the grandeur of the Brinton Museum on the historic Quarter Circle A Ranch. The elegant old ranch buildings of the Quarter Circle A, with the Big Horn Mountains looming in the background, combined with the stunning contemporary architecture of a new 24,000 sq. foot art gallery/museum create a sense of otherworldliness.
Even a visit to the Brinton website is breathtaking: http://thebrintonmuseum.org/ Allow yourself at least several hours to absorb rich history as you stroll the ranch grounds and buildings, view amazing collections of art and antiquities, and enjoy lunch or an espresso in the lovely bistro.
Other points of interest near the Brinton Museum are the Wyoming Bird Farm near Big Horn where thousands of ring-tailed pheasants are raised for release in habitats throughout the state and Fort Phil Kearny.
