This is a great small museum. One building covers local history and another covers a brief history of skiing in the region. One docent was very busy covering the whole thing... read more

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 tried to go here, but they were closed for a remodel during the peak of ski season. What's that about? Why not do a remodel during the SUMMER when the winter sports enthusiasts aren't around? We would have liked to have gone here, but couldn't.

This is a small museum in a small town, however it is worth a visit to see the collection of historic ski equipment, history of the area, and information about Hemingway's time in Sun Valley. It is a fun stop in the beautiful downtown of Ketchum.
