If you come to Ouray & don’t visit this place; then you did not truly visit Ouray. I am 26 & visited Ouray earlier* this year with my girlfriend & was even allowed to bring my two very well mannered German Sheppards in this Museum. This place has items you will never have a chance to see again! A private collection beyond imagination. This was certainly one of the most memorable conversations, displays/collections & discussions of my life. The owner Curt truly is an encyclopedia of vast knowledge in so many things. Knowledge that is unfortunately lost in this modern world. He is a gem in this world that not many people in this world could compare to. Someone who has so much to teach & pass on to the next. I wish I could have stayed much longer! This man is truly a modern day Socrates. A true philosopher & visionary. He is an absolute amazing story teller & teacher. You will leave here a much wiser & enriched man, no matter the duration of stay. He is nothing short of a gift of wisdom to this world.
Deb and I enjoyed the tour. It was one of the most interesting things I have ever done. Curt is an educator with a collection he loves, and uses smartly to educate. I cannot wait to visit again. There is just sooo much to see. And it all has such an interesting story.
