Tread of Pioneers Museum

Steamboat Springs
We try to take walking tours wherever we go, and this was probably the best walking tour we have ever had, due primarily to the skills, knowledge and preparation of our amazing guide, Marianne Capra.
Being somewhat a history buff, we spent two hours looking at all the exhibits and reading the interesting history of the settlement of the area as well as it's later development as a ski destination.
The videos and information throughout the room downstairs were fascinating and informative, but the views and Mike’s in-depth overview of stars, planets, and other elements he showed us through the telescope were...
Mike is very knowledgeable and it was amazing to see night sky objects through the telescope.

After we visited the Ute ancestral lands in Mesa Verde National Park, this museum was a perfect complement, providing in depth information and unique artifacts illustrating Ute history and culture.
Gift shop has an excellent selection of local and more general books, photographs, videos and thoughtful souvenir items.
Our tour docent, Margaret, did a fabulous job of explaining the history of the Byers/Evans families and how they influenced the development of Denver.
This is a lovely house museum, which was donated to Denver by members of the original family, with the original decor and furnishings dating back to the early 20th Century.

This has been renovated recently, and is very well laid out, telling history of Estes Park, surrounding area, etc. Very good docent on duty to explain things or answer questions.

The explorable buildings in the courtyard include a Lutheran church, barber shop, one-room schoolhouse, daily cash store, a Conoco Filling Station, two barns with buggies and vehicles and cowboy and rancher equipm...
In the back yard area, which is fenced and accessible through the main museum building, are more artifacts and specialty buildings.
It was so great and my kids were so mesmerized with all the fun memorabilia!! Pizza and garlic knots were delicious!
The decor was fun to look at, the music videos made is sing and we enjoyed reminiscing about "the good ole days."
This small museum is a gem! Make sure to book an appointment for a tour with the highly educated and informative staff members who will give you a truly educational experience in dinosaurs and fossils.
It was a pleasure to come here, and it was well-worth the price of admission to see and support the work they are doing to preserve this prehistoric treasure, and educate those who come after.
Loved the art displays and really enjoyed the history as well.The staff was very welcoming and helpful too!
It has contemporary regional art, a look at the area's geologic and community history, and an invitation to the younger set to learn hands-on!

Incredible collection of bills and coins and more ~ so fortunate there are those who are interested in preserving this history.
Our family stopped here quite by accident and we were pleasantly surprised by the interesting information in the Center and lovely gift shop with jewelry and objects made by local Native American artists.
