Booth Western Art Museum Tour
Drive Dates: Thursday and Friday, April 20 & 21, 2023
Tour Distance: 95 miles
Tour Duration: 6 hours*
The tour will begin with a roundabout drive to Cartersville. Of course, we are not going directly there. We want you to get to drive some twisty roads nestled between mountains, and see some of Georgia’s rural countryside before going to the best western art museum in the world.
Our two-hour museum tour will be led by knowledgeable docents and curators of the museum so that you will have a real understanding of their presentation when you leave. Their collection includes oil paintings, drawings, sculptures, macramé, presidential letters, and other media. You won’t be disappointed.
The Booth Museum’s mission is to educate, entertain, and inspire guests. They do so by showing Western art, popular culture, and American heritage.
The Booth Museum is associated with the Smithsonian Institution and is a 120,000-square-foot museum located in Cartersville, Georgia. You will see the country’s story through contemporary Western artwork, a Presidential Gallery, a Civil War art gallery, and an interactive children’s gallery. The museum opened in August 2003 and is the only museum of its kind in the Southeast. It was named 2020, 2021, and 2022 USA Today’s 10 Best Peoples’ Choice Award for best art museum in the country.
Following the museum tour, you will have lunch at Maine Street Coastal Cuisine, which is located about 4 blocks from the museum. You should finish lunch refreshed and with sufficient time to visit the Savoy Automobile Museum, which is located approximately 20 minutes away from the John Booth Museum.
