We always take our house guests through the Museum. Wonderful changing displays of Wood River Valley history. Knowledgeable staff and beautiful setting in Forest Service Park.

“Nice little local museum - good to visit on an off ski day - free admission”
Reviewed March 20, 2010

Learned about the museum in the visitor's center and decided to walk down there since we had a beautiful day. Admission is free which is a bonus. The staff person there was very friendly and helpful. The museum has alot of Olympic artifacts from Sun Valley folks and some really old ski gear that some of us old ski die hards will remember from our youth and stuff that is even older than that.

The other piece that is nice is that there is a little section with some Hemingway artifacts and also a nice selection of memorabilia from the towns early days.

Also recommend that you go look in the windows where the old wagons are from frontier days (next to the Ketchum Grill restaurant). Those are really interesting to look at. You engineer and builder types will love them.
