A small, yet interesting overview of Estes Park history. Was neat to see the Stanley Steamer car

Had to kill some time and wanted to know how the Stanley Hotel got its named, so a trip here answered that question. This museum is a tribute to a community showing its pride in history and heritage. Made my trip to Estes more favorable after a horrible stay at the Best Western (see other review).

We went to the museum one day for fun and were pleasantly surprised with how interesting it was. It's a free, fun, and educational experience where you get to learn all about the history of the beautiful Estes Park!

We stopped by the museum just to kill a little time. It was an excellent experience. I learned a lot about Estes Park that I never knew.

Visiting the Estes Park Museum is a worthwhile & educational experience. One can spend as much or as little time as one wants in the museums. The one on the west end of Estes is the old hydro-plant, which was built by Mr. Stanley, of the Stanley Hotel, and was destroyed by the 1982 Estes flood. The museum on the east side of Estes includes a great time-line about the early days of Estes & includes a Stanley Steamer. The museum(s) are totally free & have no admission fee. However, donations help the museum to apply for and receiver various grants, which help to keep the museum(s) open and operational. These are very much worth your time to visit them!
