The Booth Western Art Mu­seum is the largest mu­seum of its kind in the South­east and houses the coun­try’s largest per­ma­nent ex­hi­bi­tion space for Western art. An af­fil­i­ate of the Smith­so­nian In­sti­tu­tion, the Booth is an ar­chi­tec­tural won­der—de­signed to re­sem­ble a mod­ern pue­blo, con­structed from Bul­gar­ian lime­stone. The Booth’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tion of Western art, pres­i­den­tial por­traits and let­ters, and Civil War art al­lows visi­tors to “See Amer­ica’s Story” in paint­ings, sculp­ture, photography and ar­ti­facts. Sage­brush Ranch is an award-win­ning, hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence and in­ter­ac­tive chil­dren’s gallery. Booth Mu­seum was started by a fam­ily who call Cartersville home and have been Western art col­lec­tors for many years. It was their wish to share their art with the com­mu­nity.
