  • After living in steamboat for eight years I saw this place and it is really interesting. A lot of information in one small place I highly recommended it for locals and visitors.
  • Small museum with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Check out the tour and talk schedules and keep the special events in mind. Easy access and convenient to lots of great lunch places downtown.
  • I thought they have done a wonderful job of displaying and sharing the local history and the life of early settlers. There is a little room for kids to explore hands on and my young children loved it. The museum was tough but enjoyable with my almost 3 year old, but not great for younger kids. We were glad we went.
  • Superb way to learn more about Steamboat area!
  • This was a neat little place to visit during our stay in Steamboat Springs. There were a lot of interesting things and exhibits about the history of Steamboat Springs and such. It does cost $5 per person but for something to do during our afternoon, it was great and we learned a lot.
