I visited in Jan. with my husband and father, and the three of us loved it! So much to be learned in such a historic building, it made my appreciation for this tiny town grow!

Visit the museum and purchase a copy of "Walking Telluride." This self-guided tour of the town was one of the highlights of our trip.

With innovative displays and professional signage, this gem of a historical museum covers Telluride's history from the prehistoric through the present. Don't miss the outdoor mining exhibit and the kid's sluice to pan for treasures.

As it's a historical museum housed in a historic building I'd doubt it, but perhaps if it was a service dog?? Give them a call.
