Both my husband and I loved this museum. Most furniture and features down to the doorknobs and mattresses are original, dating to late 19th century. $5 got us admission and tour with five other people. Great deal for your money and a great way to spend 40 min in Georgetown. You learn about history and get to tour a downtown... More

Taking a tour of the Hotel de Paris is like stepping back in time thanks to our tour guide, Kevin. He knew so much he must have lived back then. He sure looks young for a guy who’s got to be well over a hundred years old! For every question we asked, he knew the answer. And he probably knows... More

Just like in old times, when travellers must have marvelled at this sophisticated hotel in the rough wilderness of Colorado, the museum today adds a further dimension to an excursion into the Rockies arund Denver. Steeped in Voloradobhistory, it is at the same time a testimony of the international diversity of the USA. Created by a French adventurer, with a... More

I have been on this tour several times, but not in recent years. I was delighted to see more spaces open for viewing. The history of the building in conjunction with the surroundings of the day make this a great way to better understand the gold rush days of Colorado. It is fascinating to see so many of the original... More

This is a hotel with a very colorful history and even more colorful prior owner. Definitely worth paying $5 for a personalized guided tour. The museum/hotel is now expanded with the basement open for tour. Combine this venue with the Georgetown Loop Railroad, lunch in town, and you'll have a great day in Georgetown.

The museum was beautiful, well preserved and the tour was well throughout the house, and the tour guide was well versed in the history of the museum. However, the experience was tattered by her reaction to questions, her stand offishness and her snapping at the member of my group who was responding to a text (it was not stated previously... More

Drove over to Georgetown for the day from Denver. I started on the railroad which was ok and then drove down into town. It's pretty small and not much to do but I happened upon this museum and it was great. I was the only person on my tour (not sure tourist season has really started yet). I think my... More
