First thing to know is they have limited hours, so be sure to confirm they are open. This is housed in a lovely home which was a very upscale for the period. The house is filled with many items that were not there originally along with some that were. It is not rich in interpretive information or signage, You can easily see it all in 30 minutes. There is ample street parking available.

As with many local historical societies it does its best -- wonderful house and exhibits are relative to the locality instead of trying to do the history of Colorado, and Glenwood h as an interesting pat that is worth exploring.

The name lead me to believe it was a museum on the frontier in general. But it turned out to be abo9ut the history of Glenwood Springs. The museum cover a lot of topics and gives an introduction to the town. We were met by a lovely lady who we had an interesting chat with and she was kind enough to check up with “the gods in the basement” (her words) on a question we had.

If you’re in Glenwood and want to taste the unique flavor of its history, this is a nice little house museum for just that. It’s also filled with plenty of antiques, and visitors are allowed to roam freely and touch anything they like. We’ve been in hundreds of similar museums, are “of a certain age,” and so not much was a surprise. When you see stuff you, or your parents, or your grandparents actually used, well, the stuff can’t possibly be antique, can it? But the local history is worth the visit. It’s the first place we visited when we stayed in Glenwood for a few days. From then on, names and events made sense to us. They have a free walking-tour booklet that gives you the skinny on buildings you’ll see in the city centre.

As a history nerd, I love to check these places out. This was a fun way to spend a very hot afternoon in Glenwood Springs. Located in a house built in 1905, there are all kinds of artifacts to look at and touch. Lots and lots of local history in one spot. The volunteers were able to answer all my questions and were very informative. Even my children were interested in most of the museum.😉
