Perfect historical collection of history and artifacts for the town of Aspen. We visited on our "day off" from skiing. The restored Wheeler home, in which he never lived, is the sight of this museum. Very interesting heritage.

Lots to learn about Aspen here. How it got started, who the movers and shakers were and where they came from... what helped it grow. Very beautiful mansion home.

Fascinating and entertaining insight into society of early Aspen. Guided by knowledgable and entertaining members of the Aspen Historic Society. Definitely a must do.

The $10 admission includes an exhibition catalog to accompany the second-floor exhibit, "Bests, Firsts & Worsts: Aspen in Objects." The exhibition and catalog feature more than 95...More

Here one can view thousands of old photos from the silver mining days of Aspen, from Aspen in the quiet years, after the silver boom busted, and the time when Aspen began to come alive, again, in 1949 when the music festival began and the...More
