  • For $6 each, you won't be disappointed to spend about an hour learning more about Steamboat, and the ski history of the area. We enjoyed the info about agriculture in the area.  more »

  • This museum is sensational and the young woman acting as museum guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly and very eager to share her knowledge which added greatly to the experience of myself and family as visitors to the museum. There is no better way for a visitor to Steamboat Springs to spend a morning or afternoon (or both) than to pay this museum a visit. The children's room exhibits were particularly good, with hands-on opportunity to play with exhibits and really experience the life of a child in the olden days. My 5 year old daughter absolutely loved it. Adults will be entertained, enthralled and fascinated by all the museum has to offer. Whatever brings you to Steamboat Springs, make sure you make time to visit this museum. I also add that the restrooms were possibly the cleanest in North America!
  • Very interesting. A fun way into the past. Nicely put together displays
