Small museum, but a nice place to spend 20-30 minutes and learn about the rich local history. Lots of local volunteers and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

This museum has some cool hands on stuff for the little ones. It has 3 exhibits. We learned a lot about Estes park and would definitely go back next time. This museum is free so that is another bonus.
