What a great museum, far more than we expected. In addition to the old, original buildings, the indoor museum is terrific. Lots of interesting items donated by locals. If you are in or near Encampment this is a worthwhile stop.

Yes, take a guided tour to see INSIDE. Best of museums, this small town has done it right! Fascinating history of the surrounding area of mining districts. Research center available for further exploration too.

Curiosity brought us here while the settings of the various buildings and the interpretations behind the windows held our interest long enough to soak up some sun and enjoy a little history.

Fascinating Museum. The photographs inside the center are by themselves worth the stop. But the self-guided tour throughout the buildings is equally fascinating . Even if the buildings are closed, you can peek inside. The Livery was open when we visited and that was very...More

What a wonderful piece of preserved history. Better yet all the guides are teenagers who are obviously enthused about the subject, which is so pleasing to see. Both the internal museum and the external exhibits are beautifully displayed and labelled. Well worth a visit.
