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.

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.

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!
