We arrived into the town of Telluride via the gondola from Mountain Village. We asked for directions to the Museum from a gal located at a convenient booth at the base of the gondola.. She pointed directly up the hill which appeared to be a few short blocks. For 2 healthy senior citizens who have been somewhat compriomised for the... More

I have visited lots of local history museums and have been on the Board of several Friends groups. The Telluride Museum does a good job of summing up what makes this town a place people sit and and take notice of. The Natives, THE bank robbery, the mining, and now the skiing. Each theme has are in the historic building,... More

On a day off from skiing we dropped into this little museum. It does a good job of telling the story of Telluride. So if you go skiing to this resort and want to find out about the place you are in ---Go!

I really liked learning about Telluride, lots of things I had no idea had started here. All of the locals rave about the museum and with good reason, it is a nice museum full of local color.

spent two hours in this tiny little museum. So full and rich of interesting things. I am not one to seek out museums but this one I would do again. You will learn about the miners, bordellos, hospital, Tesla, so so much more.

Our children loved mining for minerals and gems. They do a very nice job of bringing history of Telluride to visitors. Recommend for families and history buffs.

It's only $5 and definitely worth the trip. I loved learning about the history and progress of Telluride over the years. The location is convenient - right in town.

We have read about the Telluride Blanket for some time. Decided to take a ride and see it and enjoy Telluride before the ski madness begins. The Blanke was amazing. Cannot believe it is dated at over 800 years old. it was almost in perfect condition. and to see it in this small museum... what can I say. Should be... More

This was a good museum for a relatively small town. We enjoyed learning about the history of Telluride. However, a lot of the history we learned on a ride up Imogene Pass which was more fun for us as we are more outdoor people. If you can do both, which we had time for, it is definitely worth a visit... More
