“interesting history”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We visited the museum during the "Pedal the Plains" bike tour. There are lots of antiques in this rebuilt "old town." It's a bit tricky to get to/find from the interstate, but worth a visit if you're staying overnight in Burlington. The people are nice, interesting, and helpful. Check with the locals to see if there are any programs upcoming during your stay.

“Wonderful for children”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Butlington was a convenient stop on a long road trip. Old Town could not have been better for our little ones - 2, 4 and 6. We were the only visitors for most of the time. We started with a massive warehouse filled with antique tractors, wagons, cars, etc... - most of which the kids could climb on. Was hard to get them to go outside. The town was awesome, more than a dozen well preserved historic buildings with interesting exhibits. In the offseason there were none of the performances but did not matter to the kids, they had a ball in the jail, saloon, etc... All well maintained and interesting.

All of Burlington was a nice surprise - see reviews for Panadaria and the Best Western.

“Step back into a simpler time.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We love going to the Old Town Museum in Burlington, CO!! We arrived during the annual Harvest Festival during the Labor Day Weekend. There were Can-Can Dancers in the saloon, and street vendors selling their wares. A number of Bluegrass bands were performing as well. It was a very good weekend getaway!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

That was a nice treat!!! All buildings are nicely preserved. You literally can go back in time visiting the barber shop or sod house, goods store or railroad depot, saloon, bank or the court house. The collection of the artifacts in every building on the site is quite impressive, especially for the small city as Burlington, CO.
