Western Spirit: Scotts­dale’s Mu­seum of the West tells the multi-faceted sto­ries of the West through paint­ings and sculp­tures by his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary artists rang­ing from Fred­eric Rem­ing­ton to John Cole­man in an award-win­ning, twos­tory build­ing with an in­te­rior sculp­ture court­yard. Since open­ing in Jan­uary 2015, the mu­seum has ac­quired a col­lec­tion of Hopi pot­tery master­works; one of the world’s largest col­lec­tions of Western film graphic arts; and Old West ar­ti­facts rep­re­sent­ing cow­boys, rodeos and Wild West shows. The mu­seum also fea­tures the pre­sen­ta­tion-style pipe tom­a­hawk of Meri­wether Lewis, rare buf­falo robes, pho­to­graphs by Ed­ward S. Cur­tis and more. The mu­seum is a Smith­so­nian Af­fil­i­ate and is a highly rated Tripad­vi­sor at­trac­tion.
