If you're staying in Burlington Colorado then don't miss seeing The old town Museum. A lot of interesting items that you can see inside the building and outside. Also a gift shop

Extensive collection and great preservation of late 1800s/early 1900s buildings. Very friendly staff and prices in gift shop are reasonable. There is an admission charge, but for the extent of the collection, it is worth it.

This was a nice stop to stretch our legs during our road trip. We spent about an hour walking around and looking at the buildings. I would recommend this stop for anyone who is passing by.

We didn't plan enough time for this, but didn't care. Twenty buildings just full of information and exhibits. Our grandson, 11, really enjoyed this place. So much to see! If you enjoy history, this has a wealth of knowledge.
