Whitney Western Art Museum, Cody, Wyo.

After a day or two in the great outdoors of Yellowstone National Park, consider spending at least an hour or two indoors at the Whitney, part of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in nearby Cody. The collection of paintings, prints and sculptures explores themes such as heroes and legends, the Western experience and wildlife, with works by George Catlin, Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Remington, Charles Russell and others. On view is Remington's reconstructed studio, complete with paintbrushes. The museum also features contemporary works by Native American artists such as T.C. Cannon and Francis Yellow.
