We thoroughly enjoyed all the attention to detail and displays at the museum. Very informational and educational. The museum did a great job of displaying everything that is/was Telluride.

Compact, interesting, good mining information, and right near the downtown area. Hours vary based on season.

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.

The museum, housed in the towns former hospital, was done very well. As you walk around reading the history of Telluride, you get to understand how the town came into existence. The mining history is portrayed so well. Take the time to read the posted signs.....well worth the money.

After our jeep tour to Imogene Pass, we decided to visit the musuem. It was well worth our time. At $5 each the price was very reasonable and well worth our time.

They have done a nice job on this small town museum... It covers quite a bit of history and has some very interesting and informative information regarding Telluride as it grew from the 1800's mining town to the major ski resort of today.. they have lots of hands on activities for kids, both inside and outside the museum and things...

We visited the museum on a Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed it. The information about the area was excellent and gave us a much better understanding of how the area developed over the years. Staff was very friendly and informative. Highly recommend doing this if you are in Telluride.
