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.

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

This is a relatively small museum, set in the old hospital dating from the late 1800s. Telluride is rich in history, and this is the best place to get an overview of the local history before beginning your Tellureide vaca.
