What a delightful small town museum packed with wonderful displays of history no matter where you are from. Room after room (there’s around 30) filled with memorabilia, organized by a theme... more »
This place is huge. You will need some time to go through the three floors of stuff. Lots of rooms. Worth the time. Check the hours as Trip Advisor is wrong. more »
Loved this museum! Didn't expect the amount of artifacts and exhibit rooms that this building holds. There are even cabins and an old barn to see outside! I am a huge history buff and this museum definitely delivered! So many neat exhibit rooms: don't miss out on the mineral rooms in the basement nor the doctor/dentist/hospital exhibits upstairs either! We spent several hours here, but could have easily spent several more, simply to see and read everything they had on display. Highly recommend visiting this museum if you are in Ouray!
This museum is amazing with collections from pioneering families that show what life was like over one hundred years ago.
