  • Nice little local museum. Several good dinosaur & plant fossil, and mineral exhibits. There are also some local pioneer history exhibits, as well as an exhibit room that changes periodically to offer different themed displays. This room currently has a locally oriented WW I exhibit. Helpful staff offers guided tours of the museum, even for small groups (2 or 3 people). Easily viewed in 30 to 90 minutes.
  • The volunteers are very helpful and knowledgeable. Its a small museum, but large enough to keep a 7 and a 16 year old busy. WITHOUT their phones!
  • Amazing little museum in Cañon City, CO. Staff was extremely kind and knowledgeable about Cañon City history. Plus its free! There are a few donation boxes around, but you are not obligated. Will definitely be going back.
  • Had a great time at the STEM event and they have very cool things in their museum.
  • We love the tour and the food was great. Service was awesome.
