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.

Learned about the museum in the visitor's center and decided to walk down there since we had a beautiful day. Admission is free which is a bonus. The staff person there was very friendly and helpful. The museum has alot of Olympic artifacts from Sun Valley folks and some really old ski gear that some of us old ski die... More
