Small, but well maintained. Kids liked to try the puzzles, but couldn't solve the timed challenge to win a free puzzle. The climbing area was small, but little kids will enjoy climbing the rock wall. Lots of history on the area. Stop in an support the gift shop, nice books and souvenirs. Very clean bathrooms. If you need a quiet... More

We visited the museum to learn about some of the history of Estes Park. I have visited Estes Park many times but have never been to the museum. Nice displays, great lighting watched a short video at beginning of tour.

Driving from one place to another, we spotted the Estes Park Museum and made a stop there. It is quite a small museum, mostly telling the story of how Estes Park was founded and grew to be what it is today. Having been rather frequent visitors to Estes Park, we found it answered some questions we had been asking ourselves.... More

I love the Estes Park Museum ! ! ! They have a wonderful gift shop in conjunction with the museum. As part of the 100th Anniversary of Rocky Mountain National Park, they are hosting / co-hosting a series of lectures and events ~ standing room only at those I've attended ~ Incredible, knowledgable staff ~ fun to talk with about...

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.
