Don't go and think this is a fancy museum. This place is very down to earth, very quiet. A lot of reading and history. Don't miss the running train display in the back, fun to watch.

It isn't overpriced (like most things in this town) and worth the trip in to see the old mining, skiing and biking relics.....the town has an awesome history.

Interesting look at a vintage American mountain town. You get a great sense of how rugged the people must have been, and also, how they depended on each other to survive.
