Valley, industry, railroad and skiing history. We spent over an hour enjoying the displays, which was great for an afternoon off of skiing!

After major upgrades and expansion, the museum is a must for skiers of all ages. I go often with guests and family. Plan on spending time as there is lots of interesting reading.

In the center of town. The museum is located in refreshed forest ranger buildings. A great local history. The schedule of when it is open varies. I would try to call ahead and see but this is worth a walk through. I stumbled into it being open.

Much to my surprise, and delight, I was the only visitor at the museum. What a sweet little museum it is with lots of great information about Sun Valley, skiing and Ernest Hemmingway. I went in both buildings. The exhibits were nicely done. The curator was friendly and helpful. My only negative is that when the video is playing, if... More

recently re-visited the museum after its greatly-needed re-do and think it looks 10,000% better than its former self ever did (which was rather Dank Smelling & Boring). Highly recommended and a Great Value for the money. :DDDDD

The gate was open so we could walk around the site and look at the old buildings. However, the Ski Museum was still closed with the sign "Closed due to unforeseen circumstances" still posted. You might wish to call first!

Were Closed When They Were Supposed to Be Open! Went at 1 in the afternoon, on a Monday, and there was a sign on the door that they were closed for some "unforseen reason". We had scheduled our entire afternoon a round that to go there. Were they out of volunteers or? Small, and not much to speak of on... More
