Took the kids here one day while staying in Gunnison. LOTS to see! There are many different buildings full of various historical items. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The best part is that if you can't get through the museum in one day, you can come back again another day to finish up. All on your one admission... More

We are a family of 4, with 2 children under 10. I have to honestly say, there was not a dull moment. There entire family loved the 3 hours we spent there. Not a whole lot of museums can hold a childs attention, for 3 hours. From the train, to the automobiles, to the war artifacts, there is not a... More

Great "pioneer" focused museum. Many machines; agricultural, railroad, mining, and an 80 vehicle antique car display.

Many, many artifacts and a great little authentic village with an actual train. The car museum is a must-many, many cars are displayed.

My husband has been to Gunnison multiple times for vacation over the years and this year, we finally checked out the museum. There is a LOT to see on this 6 or 7 acre site! We didn't get through all of it (had a toddler who needed a nap) but what we did see was impressive. There's all sorts of... More

We have visited museum after museum--big ones, little ones. The Gunnison Pioneer Museum is by far the most comprehensive, extensive, inventive museum we have seen in eons. It's a "must"...and has something for visitors of all ages. Do not assume this is just about the Gunnison area, but covers American history generically, boasting memorabilia that collectors would love to own.... More

By far one of the best museums I have ever visited. They have everything you could think of! They have a wide range of buildings, including two school houses, and an actual two story house full of antiques and very open exhibits. In fact, everything is an open exhibit. When you're looking in the main building you're already thinking you've... More

After 13 hours of driving from Oklahoma, we stopped on a whim to stretch our legs. So glad we did! They have done a great job with this museum. The grounds and displays were very well maintained and made for a perfect family stop. They had a wide variety of artifacts that were interesting to mom, dad, and kiddos. I... More

The first time our family was in Gunnison, we drove right past this museum. Thank goodness for second chances! We were at Blue Mesa camping this week and had some time to go into Gunnison. After picking up the brochure for the Gunnison Pioneer Museum, we decided to give it a try, and we were so thrilled we did. This... More
