Nice place to visit. Very informative. Worth the few dollars if you like Colorado history. Don't expect; Kenny, Cartman, Kyle or any of that sort.

I hadn't been to this museum since I was a kid - but it is honestly fantastic and worth the price of admission. The buildings are fascinating, as are their contents. Will definitely stop by again!

Great place to see what life in the Rockies was like a hundred years ago. Well presented, not overdone, authentic artifacts. Even the kids will like it!

Really great experience going back through time! We spent 2 hours there and it went by very fast. Lots of neat things to look at and history to learn about the area and Colorado's mining and ranching past.

We thought we would "pop" in here and spend an ahour and move on, but we spent closer to 2.5 hours walking the streets and exploring the old buildings and their contents of this partially restored old gold mining town. There are about 40 buildings...More

A little disappointing that only some of the things were actually from SouthPark - but it sure was worth it to see all the old stuff!

A great place to view what it was like to live in the mountains during the mining boom days. Reconstructed village just like an old mining town. Open air and self guided.
