    Wow, don't miss coming to this museum. Spent over an hour here and still ready to come back next time to see more.

    The exhibits are especially interesting and colorful, including skillful flavoring of the wild west days of law(less?) enforcement, and a fine restoration of the adjacent homestead cabin. The staff are wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable and considerate.

Where to stay in Durango

Immerse yourself in Durango's rich history by staying in one of downtown's turn-of-the-century hotels, where the buildings' brick architecture highlights a bygone era. Not only do these pack plenty of character, they offer proximity to the majority of the town's eateries, stores, and attractions. A motel farther out of town is typically cheaper, while a rural bed and breakfast is ideal for a romantic getaway. For an authentic western Colorado experience, consider a dude ranch on the outskirts.
