The two ladies in attendance at the museum the day I visited were a wealth of knowledge and stories. Worth the time and few dollars to review the history of a great Western town. Feel free to ask the ladies for any thoughts on local things to do, restaurants, or happenings.

I believe in supporting local historical societies such as this. They have collected many different artifacts from the old west and the area. It was interesting and enjoyable!

Great location, price and collective memory of this historic small town. Go for an hour. Make it part of your downtown walking tour before you go up Doc Holliday's Trail!

It's a small museum located in an old house in Glenwood, but it contains a ton of local history. I love that sort of thing. It costs $4 for adults and $3 for kids. I'd rather skip an ice cream cone and go see some cool history.

Nicely restored home with a variety of displays that were in good condition and even encouraged interaction with some of the artifacts.

The museum is located in one of Glenwood Springs older homes and contains items from the early 1900's. This house was unique in that it was electrified and had steam heat. Not a lot here for kids but lots of stuff their great grandparent might have used. There is also a little on mining and Doc Holliday as well.

Our host was charming and informative, and very welcoming. The layout is thoughtfully executed, and a lot of information is packed into a tiny space. Good use of an old house, as well. The search game for kids was a nice touch, too. It's well worth the paltry entry fee.

Very small museum, but not crowded the day we visited so the host had time to fill us in with personal stories. "Gift shop" should have much more to offer, and the open days/hours should be expanded.

All the times we've been to Glenwood and this was our first time at the Frontier Museum. Quaint old victorian home with lots of artifacts and an ineresting history. Also very inexpensive. The woman in the parlor was engaging and helpful. Really a nice place to spend an hour or so.
