Only $3 to get in this old home in Glenwood Springs. They have some great old artifacts and lots of information about how this area came about. Hint- see if you can guess what the contraption to the left of the front door is. You get a prize if you can.

Small admission price ($4). Wonderful old house. The woodwork and high ceilings are amazing. A large collection of artifacts from the turn of the century greets you. The old Victrola and telegraph were reminders for my teens of how people communicated and entertained themselves. Well worth a visit.

It's an adorable historic museum. Go and check it out. Great ticket price and local history beautifully preserved and staffed by volunteers. Ask to see historic prints of local photos. They make great framers and travel memories.

This converted house is a little gem for a small museum. Lots of great historical items. There are many fun and varied exhibits. There's a little bit of lots of things. I thought the admission was reasonable. I enjoyed it.

Recently I had the pleasure to take the walking tour of Glenwood Springs offered every Friday evening at 7:00pm by the Frontier Historical Museum. I have only taken one similar historical walking tour (in Sedona, Arizona), but this tour was excellent. The tour leader was dressed in period costume and created a feeling of excitement and adventure throughout the evening.... More

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.

You pay $4.00 (which I think is a little expensive) and you can go through on your own. they have informative signs on the displays. there are two floors that are packed with antiques and tons of history. I loved everything about this place. the kitchen was thoughtfully put together and the upstairs has the wardrobes and guns. the bedroom... More
