Very informative. The docent on duty was very helpful in finding the proper book for my granddaughter. Be sure to visit the old homestead cabin at rear of museum.

I really enjoyed the Estes Park Museum. There were a lot of exhibits and information in the small local museum. Well worth spending an hour at to learn more about the area.

We were waiting for others in the group who were doing some shopping in town. This was a convenient easy to visit museum. It is small enough to complete in an hour or less and thoroughly enjoyable. Don't miss the cabin out back.

An interesting little museum that gives you the background of Estes Park. It was a nice respite from an unusually hot day.

Estes Park has an interesting history! Many excellent artists have worked there, too. The museum does a good job of telling the story with displays and movies, and acquainting visitors with a sampling of the wonderful artwork done in Estes. And it's free!

Always like to visit. Their special events and programs are very well done and give a unique glimpse of local history. It's a lovely facility--very clean and bright--with a great little gift shop.

Nice thing to do to give the kids an idea of the Estes Park of yesteryear. We enjoyed the little ground squirrels outside near the old log house and looking in to see how it was furnished etc. Very convenient location across from the lake. Nice facility. Small and manageable.

If you go to the Estes Park Museum, you will understand that Estes Park has been a favorite destination for tourists for over a hundred years! Entrepreneurs recognized very early what an astounding place Estes Park was and still is. Those same people were responsible for building the first roads into Estes Park.
