A. R. Mitchell Museum of Western Art

The Mitchell Museum is housed in a 1900s western style building with the original tin ceiling, wood floors, and a horseshoe-shaped mezzanine. This spectacular building was a department store when it was originally built. The main floor features a selection of more than 250 original paintings by acclaimed western artist and illustrator Arthur Roy Mitchell and his contemporaries. The mezzanine offers a wonderful gallery space where featured artists exhibit their works. The First Street Gallery features local artists' exhibitions and stimulates the imagination with some of todays finest modern art. The Atrium Gallery at the Mitchell- 148 Main Street, Third Floor, can also be entered through the ground level First Street Gallery. It features working-artist studios and a gallery in a beautiful turn-of-the-century building which displays the work of renowned Western artist, A. R. Mitchell.

Currently on display are vintage cameras depicting the history of photography from the 1900s to the present and "Century of Commerce" which portrays the many businesses that contributed to Trinidad's rich history. The museum houses the Aultman Photographic Collection, scheduled for display later this year, depicting the history of photography from the 1600s to the present and "The faces of Trinidad" which portrays the many cultures and occupations that contributed to Trinidad's rich history.
