What sets the EPM apart from those around the state is the vibrancy of its publishing program. The number and quality of the publications that the Friends Press has produced, and continues to produce, rivals the best historical museums in the country. It certainly ranks # 1 in Colorado.

What an incredibly awesome place to spend an afternoon. I'm a history buff so this is a natural for me. They have a wonderful archive of old photos along with very well appointed exhibits. One of my favorite places to go AND the gift shop has so many books along with prints, puzzles, etc. Check it out ! ! !

This museum has a unique Stanley Steamer car on display in one of the authentic antique structures and that was the highlight of the museum. The staff are very friendly & helpful but the hours are limited at different times, so be sure to google before going if your really interested.

This little museum does a terrific job of re-creating Estes Park history through family friendly interactive exhibits. A small art gallery features local artists.

Pulled over to see what it offered, not much. Lots of pictures of the beauty you see by walking outside. Some artifacts.

This museum is free to the public, you can leave a contribution if you want. The museum had lots of history on how Estes Park came about.

Honestly, the only reason we initially stopped here was to grab a geocache for the Estes Park GeoTour. We were surprised to find a very nice little museum with a thorough history of the town and National Park. The lady staffing the desk was amazingly enthusiastic about her museum & town and was very helpful in giving us advice &... More

A very small place that you really have to scout out, but it is quite worthwhile to see how it all evolved. Worth a quick peak! No fee.

The Estes Park museum is free and a wonderful place to learn about the history of the area. I was not terribly impressed with the introductory film but it is probably because I am a native of the area. The museum is small but contains a lot of information. They have also moved the first national park headquarters and a... More
