My wife and I took an hour long tour of the Healy House Museum and Dexter cabin while in Leadville, Co. It is well worth the tour, lots of History and interesting items to hear about and actually see what the guide was talking about.

Typical historical home in Leadville. One of the main issues is that they only have one piece of furniture that is original to the home. The guide did not talk much, so the tour was rather brief.

I have visited this museum several times and was quite impressed at the quality of all the details of this museum. Of all of the museum in Leadville, this is one of the top three I recommend visiting for the rich history of the house.

The cabin and house are both a treasure to go thru. We learned a lot from our guide. This is a must - buy a Leadville passport. It gets you into most of the major attractions. You can buy this at any of the museums...More

It was fun to see items from everyday life in this lovely home, and have a docent who told us about the items and the people who owned them with nary a note. This was a thorough tour!
