If you have a hour or so that you would like to kill in Estes Park this is the place for you. Lots of information that you probably don't know unless you live there.

This is a really nice small museum about the history of Estes Park.....and it's free so who can beat that? The displays were nice and the lady working there was very friendly and knowledgeable. Don't forget to go out back to see the cabin and other building. There is also a nice gift shop in the main building that has... More

Another free, donations accepted, place in Estes Park that does a very good job of covering the local history of the area. Be sure to walk next door to see a building 'of the era' and its furnishings.

We enjoyed being in Estes Park & the museum this week for the 100th Anniversary celebration of the Park. There was a great presentation at the museum about mountain climbers of Longs Peak.

the difference between places like this in town and out of town are vastly different. Much more interest in real time things then the usual museum stuff that bores after a while.

More than anything else, visitors go to Estes Park to be in the mountains. But sometimes you need a day away from hiking, or the weather isn't cooperative for being outdoors, or you're a history buff. That's when you should get yourself over to the Estes Park Museum. It's a great small town museum run by big city minds. You... More

Good way to decide what to see and do, plus learn the history of the town.We took the free shuttle to Rocky Mountain National Park, also free when you arrived by shuttle. Gorgeous scenery!

This is a small museum but rich in history. Take time to stop in and enjoy the rich history it has to better serve you of the area of Estes Park. The people who work there are very warm and inviting.

We visited here on our last day, before we road out of town. Not a lot to it, but there are some neat exhibits. They even have a Stanley Steamer. Fun! Great place to spend an hour or less.
