  • Neat house lots of smalls take your time and really look at the home it's self you can see the wear and lived in look from many years of use. Lots of stories about the locals
  • There is quite a bit of history for this small town. The curators have included a large sampling of the area's history and excellent and well-maintained exhibits. Anyone with an appreciation of history should visit at least once.
  • Two hours wasn't enough for me to finish the instructional portion of the museum (I read everything). We'll definitely have to return to visit the Victorian house portion of the museum.
  • 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.
