“Best historical museum ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

The history of the Telluride region is so rich, and the Telluride Historical Museum does an unparalleled job of bringing that history to life in an interactive and engaging way. The museum is not to be missed.

“A small museum but interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Not a huge museum but full of interesting displays.

In an older house up a side street, away from the main street area, the walk up to it is a nice stroll

“If you want the local history, don't miss this spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

If you want to understand the mining history, you can't do any better than the Telluride Historical Museum. The trials of hard rock gold mining are amazing and will give you a much better appreciation of the amazing history of Telluride and the San Juan Mountains.

“A MUST SEE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Telluride is full of history! You have to go & buy "The Tomboy Bride" book. Telluride comes to life here! The employees are very welcoming and friendly.
