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.

Nice people who know a lot about the local history. They need more space and displays, but what they have is really nice.

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.

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.

This little museum represents very well the early history of the settling by European Americans, including the 1800-early 1900's, mostly. There is some later history for the town, but it is really much more representative of the culture of the time in general, rather than specifics of the town.
