I learned a lot of interesting facts about Estes Park and enjoyed getting to see what Estes Park looked like before it got built up. I didn't know that the lake you see upon entering the park was man-made!

The museum was very clean and perfect for young kids. I would recommend going there for info in addition to the Visitor's... More

Nice history about the town. Friendly staff and free to the public. Good little pit stock. More for adults than small children, not enough to keep them interested. Good for history buffs.

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.

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
