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

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.
