Founded in 1960, The Brinton Museum is a fine arts institution devoted to preserving the art and history of the West. Located on the historic Quarter Circle Ă Ranch in the foothills of the majestic Bighorn Mountains, it features 19th, 20th and 21st century American and Indian Art in a historic Western setting. The museum continues to expand upon the work of Helen Brinton, who in 1960 established an institution named after her brother, Bradford, as well as the Helen Brinton Bird, Game and Fish Reserve. Helen’s intent was to preserve the Quarter Circle Ă Ranch and the Brinton’s collection of fine art, furnishings, and historic Native American artifacts and make them accessible to the public. It was her desire that the institution be a source of education and enjoyment to all visitors.
